I like to shape imagery and color to show the human and natural conditions of my life. To me, color represents emotion. It's through emotion that allows me to create an expressive language through painting and drawing.
One way I do this is by pushing two opposing parts of a painting at the same time. For instance, painting in broad strokes, abstract colors, and irregular shapes to show implied detail and form in subject matter I choose to capture revealing an impressionistic aesthetic.
Within the last several years of arting I have shifted my work from creating an academic approach of capturing realness to an intuitive method of expression with intrinsic overlays. I attribute this shift to my wife and I having and raising my daughter. With having a child it became difficult to focus on any subjects I've painted in the past, to one that was crying, sleeping, and showing me the essence of the unexplainable when it comes to the human experience. I feel I have developed a natural, progressive way to capture these moments in my life without having to be representational to color or structure. To be expressive in experiences and aware of time passing.
