Open Art Calls Accepted Artists

There is no true color. Only light and form. Taking this principle, I explore form and energy as it relates to an elusive, ever-changing light source. Robust color and slashes of movement are used to translate themes of metaphorical freedom, introspection, nature and physics.
I work in acrylics, rotating subject themes in a series, usually working eight-to-ten canvases at a time. Scratches and swaths of color are often overlaid with sheens of gloss and matte finish. In this way the work is ever-changing depending on the light source. Shapes appear and fade with direction and intensity of light.
Metal leafs are often introduced into the work to add metaphorical weight and because of its transitional, unpredictable nature. When treated with a mild acid the thin metal decays and oxidizes, leaving an organic, aged appearance. Juxtaposed with the untreated, shimmering, almost gaudy leaf, this effect also speaks to transformation and transcendence.
