Color Interaction.

I'm a life-long student of color. I studied Color Theory at The University of Georgia, The Atlanta College of Art, and The Art Students League of New York. 

I delve into the way colors interact through a course of layering oil and allowing it to dry between applications. Paint is applied by brush, scrape, brayer or transferred from wax paper. The colors overlap but do not mix creating a mysterious iridescence. The motifs are abstract, built with strident gestural confidence, creating a sense of emotion ranging from quiet to explosive.

 

I took this departure in my work at a tumultuous point in my life.  I'm a quiet and orderly person by nature and this more physical and dynamic process of painting allowed me a freedom of expression that was cathartic.
