I think a lot about internal and external spaces and my presence and impact on my environment. I think of myself as a liaison between the abstract nature of human consciousness and the daily encounters of our tangible world. Being in a continuous state of both introspection and awareness is where I find truth and potential. Through the process of painting lies a place where I am able to project a state of mind that is fluid, reactive, and honest. I am trying to create a moment of truth, one that uses abstract art as both a means of escapism and extraction. I am asking my viewer to be present and in the moment of its visceral viewing because that’s all that is true.
