Play and Wonder Studies: Pink #1

Artwork Tags:

, ,

These studies are organic, raw and unapologetic moments of play - what I believe is an essential practice for growth as an expressionist artist. They are torn out pages of my notebook upon which a childlike wonder of color lay. Stay in awe of the color and texture around you. The feeling of grass beneath your feet and flower petals between your fingers. Pink: Pink is often associated with children and unabashed playfulness. Its a color that giggles ( I swear! listen to it) and embraces wonder. “You can measure the steeple that’s close to the sky. / you can burrow to where the gold grains lie, / But a little girls wonder is very big — / too high to climb and too deep to dig.”

My work seeks to create safe places driven by love and grace. Split between representational work and abstract pieces, my paintings unpack relationships between humanness and our living natural world. My paintings are visual expressions of a poem, a song or a prayer — the colorful manifestation of still moments. Where I grew up has a particularly rich impact on the subject matter of my representational paintings. The lifestyle in my hometown is slower, the landscape seems to set still both time and people. In a day and age that feels like we are rushing through our days and forgetting to be present, I want to remind us of a place where "rush" doesn't exist - there is only the fields, the farm, and the creeks. My entire painting practice is about paying attention to small still moments. When I'm painting, i'm listening. How are the colors interacting? what are these soft whispers saying and why?
