ColorThese paintings were inspired by my military deployments, experiences as a first responder, and personal narrative both of my own experiences and experiences of those close to me.
I am drawn to striking, graphical images that are both powerful and beautiful. I am drawn to human and natural forms, both their absence and presence. Depending on the body of work I am creating, I use both absence and presence as a method to influence the perception of the viewer. I translate my personal response to conflict through a meticulous control of color, a clean aesthetic, and a deliberate use of negative space.
