Photograph - Acrylic Painting Digital Photograph
I have always been able to use my imagination to manipulate the world around me. The goal of my art is to challenge the viewer to use his or her childlike imagination to create the image that is before them. Your vision can play tricks on you just like the images before you, twisting and turning until forms and shapes are recognizable. The rhythm of colors and shapes have a hypnotizing effect, sucking the viewer in. Process is very important to my art. I am always adding steps and repeating old ones. I use the camera as a tool much like a painter uses a paintbrush to capture and take the painting into a hyper real state. I have always been interested in abstract art and photography. My goal is to combine the ideas of abstract expressionism with photography. Abstract painters pour and drip paint, drag brushes on canvas and draw shapes with an exaggerated presence. They create three dimensional space using paint to build the image. Abstract photography can take this back to a two dimensional plane with the illusion of dimensionality created with the use of light.
