Figuratively, my paintings developed into a series of “City” paintings using a reverse painting technique on plexi glass. The “City” series emphasized a milieu of isolation and sterility, utilizing lustrous saturation of color featuring a singular foregrounded figure set upon a streaming corridor of dynamic coloration juxtaposed against looming buildings. This lone individual infers uncertainty and the inevitable solitary nature of the human condition. The veracity of the singular individual becomes the primary and inescapable guarantee of human existence. This existential loneliness provokes a possible catalyst, motivating one to challenge personal subjective truths and the fundamental questions of human existence.
My concurrent abstract series utilizes a patterned organic motif and illustrates an implied molecular scheme. These meditations explore the theme of mortality intertwined with biology and confronts the uncertainty and impermanence inherent in nature.
The landscape of my life shifted significantly after becoming handicapped at a young age. I consciously recognized that my life was unalterably transformed and my former childhood friends would soon grow distant and eventually leave me behind. Many of the sentiments found in my art link directly to these memories, helping establish a vital connection with deep-rooted emotions illustrated in the disquiet and isolation of my paintings.
