Abstract as Essence
Abstract art speaks to the essence of life and the human psyche. Like an aerial view of the land or an extreme close up of a flower, universal patterns and rhythms of the cosmos are apparent. There is a pattern here, it’s a little familiar, but how do we make sense of it? What does it mean? Maybe it will remain a mystery, like our essence.

Abstraction relies on repetition, rhythm, inter-related parts, often expressed through mood and emotion. It takes intuition to both create abstract art and to appreciate it.

When I paint in abstract, I start with my unconscious and then respond to what I discover in the first marks or brushstrokes. It becomes a conversation between parts of myself. I often listen to jazz while painting this way: like jazz, abstract work involves improvisation and flow, mistakes and surprises.

Inarticulate, intangible, what do these pieces relay to you? Playful, moody, an abstract is a Rorschach for projection, a haiku to contemplate.

“Trilogy of Joy” 12”x18” oil on linen
"I don't paint because I'm happy. I'm happy because I paint." This quote by coastal artist Katia Kyte really spoke to me when getting my recent floral and still life paintings ready for the May/June OAS Gallery show. Being in the studio or painting en plein air (painting outside from life) has been one of my brightest moments during the last few years. I've taken the opportunity of experimenting with both natural and still-life setup lighting ideas to explore elements of composition, lost and found edges, brushwork and found myself thriving in the process. There is such freedom in allowing the learned techniques to be at the back of my mind and letting creativity be the dominant characteristic of this almost-daily practice. Looking at this work, I see memories of the experience of these experiments blended in with positive energy.
