The exploration of painting for me is a byproduct of making tangible thoughts and dreams I have or experienced. Many images come to me from unconsciously drawing and sketching in my daily practice. I also at times might have a word in mind that sums up what idea could work as subject matter. This literal premise gets turned around in early stages where it may become the basis of a final painting.
I use amorphous shapes which to are recorded or fleshed out with tone, light and shadow taking on surreal elements. As if the reality of life can be found in many variations and emotional moments passing in a single day, I see my work as illuminations of these moments of feelings or idea's which have or might have affected me. Underscoring this theme I attempt a documentation of images unreal as abstractions yet recognized as my inner vision.
As a celebration that 2020 has ended and that a new year is here, FLATFILE has launched a new online program title, simply: "2021."
We invited artists to participate through a rolling open call, which remains open for the entirety of this year. From these submissions, our jury panel carefully selects new works to present on FLATFILE, with new works added throughout all of 2021.
The price of each artwork is a flat $2,021,
a discounted price from the actual value of each work, offered here, exclusively.
