Description

I create paintings that examine the human ego and memory. My work is a metaphor for awareness. I am currently working on paintings that bring the viewer into a space where they experience a transformative state of mind and reach higher levels of consciousness. I am highly influenced by nature and landscapes. I am interested in combining many mediums together and painting subject matter on top of layers depicting the rural landscape in a unique way. My goal is to represent landscapes and abstract pieces in a different way than we normal perceive it. I have been creating paintings that involve many different techniques and processes involved in the conception of the work. In the past I have painted many landscapes from photographs that I have taken but my concept for Rural Reverie is painting subjects in the landscape in a more representational way. The landscape becomes more of a plane of consciousness. Photography is still a powerful tool that helps me hone my interests into subject matters that I paint. I paint less from photographs but more from memory of photos that I have taken. I am interested in urban, rural buildings and manmade decay.
