I’m an abstract painter. I love my chosen craft with every fiber of my soul. The quick movements of my brush are calculated and rehearsed. Sketches overlaying sketches become projections, which are then carefully painted on to the canvas. I sometimes need to paint three paintings over an area, only realize it needed four. It’s about building layers, creating universes, devising a new language of emotion. The universal truths are just that--no matter what reality you pull from--art will always have its beautiful truths, and bending those is the ballet of the abstraction. To me, it’s a science. Sometimes I see myself as more of an architect that needs structure, purpose, and balance to be engineered in a way that its purpose for existing meets that of its requirements. Abstract art for me, is the chess board. It’s a universe that allows you to see it as a light-hearted game or a socially accepted way to live your life.
