Premiere en Rouge
A female figure walks a shadow of herself. A red carpet shaped in her own image. The red carpet she walks may be any stage or event in her life; a premier for her. The plane is divided and the shadows are painted flat. The shadow is what grounds the figure to a real and tangible situation. Her shadow is red to express the importance of the walk she is taking. The background is divided into an expressive explosion of figures, faces and energy that surround the situation; currently present or passed prior. The division is an expression of everything that is happening around her.
“I paint stories of the human experience. The soul of life demonstrated in depictions of figures interacting within a realm of time, a realm of realities, and with one another. I express the plane of existence pictorially divided, fragmented, as the energy and emotion around each being and happening. Often this movement is abstract and often it is literal. I create images from inside myself. I carry them and grow them within me until I create. Most of my paintings are of women and their realities as they relate to the greater human experience. I have worked in oils since my early life and prefer my expressions to be shared in their luminance applied using master techniques. “
