Under my skin IV

Artwork Tags:

BY THE WAYSIDE I am touched by glorious landscapes that teach us: there is a chance of non-separation, to be completed and humbled, to experience genesis and rebirth. It is here that I stumble upon an exterior landscape that mirrors my interior wilderness that I bring along with me, alluring and alarming. I am honoring the seemingly unspectacular: seeds, reeds, grasses, dried flowers, aka the microcosm of landscapes. The encaustic monotype process lends its unique beauty to heighten the experience of reading an abstraction as part of the whole. Therefore, creating landscapes within landscapes.

Deeply inspired by the beauty of flowers and landscapes, I push my subject to a place of gestural abstraction. Sweeping gestures are heightened by bold saturated tones. The process of mark making, color choice, and composition happens mostly subconsciously. It matures to a gestural dance revealing my utmost authentic voice; a dreamlike reconfiguration of emotional meanings. The resulting work is vibrant, complex and meant to make intimate connections with the audience, invoking both my vision and feeling of a world where beauty and vulnerability are the touching keystones. Detroit, 2020
