Paintings; Modern Abstracts

2015-2016; I have set myself free from focusing on my main series to create some new energy and follow my whims; hope you enjoy them!  I realized I never went through a psychedelic phase in my work and I felt the need to look back and remember some very inspiring times in my life, so if they feel a bit retro, that’s why.

Historically-
The focus of my BFA was painting and I have never lost the love of painting.  Early works with multi-layered transparent sprays and washes I created atmospheric panels.  My approach is to use a restrained layering of the thin transparencies or metal leaf over rich under-paintings.  The addition of copper and silver leaf in my works adds a fluid element as tones change from different vantage points.  Those tonal changes then become more complex as they interact with varying qualities of the rich under-painting.  This method gives the canvas a smooth finish, and highlights the abstract imagery.
In my paintings I am seeking a meditational simplicity & transcendence from the everyday.

I am happy to accept commissions if you see something you like but it is sold.  I can work on something new in a similar direction & materials.
