Whether my art is addressing our current education system, destruction of nature, or the beauty of nature, I want my audience to feel. I want them to be able to feel emotions. I want them to feel my juxtaposition. Because the pieces I create evoke these emotions in me and allow me to leave these feelings with my art. Allowing myself to see the destruction, but also see the beauty of growth. It is this growth that defines us and that is exactly what I want to create in this world.
Every day my process is developing and as my art keeps progressing I find myself growing to an overwhelming juxtaposition of enlightenment. I feel confident and humbled. I feel content and wanting. These feeling are expanding my mind of understanding and patients. Art has saved me from ruins and has given me a way to express myself. This realization has been a key factor in my art from the beginning.
As all my processes become one, my art has developed a voice. Image transfer, drip paint, and splatter paint. Through all these processes my themes are beginning to grow into one theme of expression. I am able to tell a story. Requiring the viewer to take a step back and try to understand what is and isn’t trying to be said.
Nature’s beauty has become increasing more significant in my art over the past year. I have found that no matter the destruction of the past, nature will prevail. This constant in life gives me comfort and is the foundation to my current series of work.
