Artist Statement:
In my paintings ethereal modulations of hand made rust water solutions work with acrylic color to engage the canvas surface and build floating realms outside of gravity and everyday space. The ethereal modulations of subtle color and organic form reflect certain values of Japanese Shinto and Taoism that relate to an exploration of the understated power, beauty, and rhythms of nature. The more carefully calculated, inscribed graphite lines in turn, touch upon modern design aesthetics.
