Ask any artist “What is abstract art?” I am sure you will get a different reply from each. To me, abstract art is stepping outside of realism to create a visual message that comes from a place inside my subconscious. It goes deeper into relaying a thought or emotion using paint as its voice. Building layers of pigments, mediums and collage inspire me to share these conversations with my viewers. Writing on the canvas intentions, scraping in marks, painting color on color is a dance of push and pull until the image has had it’s say. Often collectors may sense their own interpretation as to how the artwork resonates with them. It can be a personal visual experience. My wish is that you uncover your own messages in one of the available pieces shared here.
