This is one of the early works I created combining the different mediums of acrylic, pencil, marker and spray paint. The layers that emerge stand on the shoulders of previous layers. In other words, each artistic mark and surface builds on those that came before it. This work really emphasizes the difference in lines and shapes but using brighter or darker color. The bursts of red and orange stand out because they are more representative of our instincts. I’ve always liked to think that my instinct creates more beautiful things than my mind. To me, this setting is like a harmony of all different kinds of creatures, sort of like a Noah’s ark of characters within the same frame. And even though they are very different, from the triangular shapes to the abstract shapes connected through dark lines, or the spray painted red eye looking curiously out towards the viewer, they are all connected. It’s like a bunch of interesting choir members, each with their own life and their own happiness and sadness, yet coming together to sing one work , i.e. portray itself as one painting that conveys a sense of harmony within all the complexities of life.

'My religion is to trust myself'. My process involves creating art quickly to produce works which represent a particular moment in time. Years of study and experimentation have made significant contributions to my work. But simply trusting my instincts has encouraged more interesting results and has allowed me to avoid difficulties related to paralysis by analysis. There is often an appropriate amount of breathing between various aspects, layers or gestures within each work. But those breaths are also within the same period of time and space, so each new element still feels and looks like it emanated from materials which came before it.
