My new work pulses with the organic motion of waves, of wind, of topographies. Built with amassed gestures, my pieces evoke both the aerial and the terrestrial – imagined terrains of the sky, the water, and the land. These pieces represent moments of convergence, growing, reaching, and becoming, as they materialize the invisible energies in nature.
Made from laser cut aluminum or acrylic, based on gestures developed through brushed ink or digital drawings, these works are amassed in thin layers, floating off the wall in shallow relief; the shadows cast on the wall from natural and directional light are an integral aspect of each piece. The surfaces are tactile, ranging from matte to glossy, with vibrant color and metallic sheen. Continuing to be influenced by early 20th Century Mysticism, these new works also relate to aspects of color field painting and the light and space movement. Executed in a variety of scales, the pieces feel both micro and macro-cosmic, as they make physical space and psychic space for contemplation.
