This body of work is driven by the emphasis and application techniques exploring the physicality between the paint and myself.  Through formal aesthetics I work with line, color, and the overall composition to evoke a chaotic yet balanced two-definitional atmosphere.  Acrylic paint, silkscreen ink, and various polymer mediums allow me to build layers that function spatially. Lacking any specific narrative, this work is an optical experience that allows the viewer to inspect it without any preconceive associations.  These abstractions allow for an alternative means of communication this is not bound in words or representation, but rather through mood, feelings, intuition, and the unknown.
