My paintings are about the beauty of fully saturated colors, their reaction to each other and the profound effect viewing them has on us all. I strive to create colors that vibrate against each other while making subtle changes in hue that seem to cause flat space to bend.
I work to give each painting a sort of “proud-chested” feeling. This is accomplished by not allowing the subject to completely fit on the canvas and by altering the viewpoint and perspective, creating a feeling of iconic architecture.
It’s the architecture of buildings redefined by the use of vivid color that define my collection of Pop Constructivist-style paintings called Architectural Portraits.
The abstract collections are about the purity of color interaction, shapes that seem to create space and depth, balancing heavy shapes with open space by the use of color and by trying to coax the viewers focus to a focal point.
