Our Last Moments At The Sage Cafe 2016.j

Artist Statement

It is my life long journey as a painter that keeps my curious mind continuously analyzing and synthesizing the world around me. Whether I am working from within or interpreting my surroundings I welcome these struggles, as I know they will lead to progress. 

 

For my interior paintings, I employ a unified palette that contains similar values in the background and foreground. This application contributes to the overall flatness of the surface.  

 

Line weight and linear perspective are adjusted to both anchor and float the pictorial spacing of the picture plane. 

 

Additional dichotomies which I focus on include: tension & flow, certainty & ambiguity, and lost & found edges of forms.  

 

All of these create push and pull throughout the image and mimic life’s movements of moments in our interior spaces.
