My love affair with water… I am silently inspired by the magnificence of water. Drawing its essence in with my every breath, it influences me to create. Water’s power sustains the flow of life’s current. The receding movement takes away my concerns leaving me with a renewed sense of infinite possibility. My technique was developed by measuring the viscosity of different weights of paints. Living in a warm climate I am able to dance with color introducing controlled temperature settings to produce a variety of color weight, density and rhythm on the canvas. I discovered through a system of layering that different forms of paints could illustrate the degree in which the viewer’s optic experience is not limited to what is obvious on the two dimensional surface. I seek a clear luminosity in my artwork that is contemporary, yet incredibly timeless, but also very dramatic, visceral and cinematic, almost like a still from film. My Fluid Dreams series of contemporary abstracts is influence by British seascape artists such as Turner and Ruskin, perhaps that why the completed artwork is very sculptural and 3-dimensional. Each painting for me is a scientific exercise which illuminates the force of nature in our everyday lives. 828-230-6613
