"Imitating Life," original painting, 36" x 24"
From inception to completion, this one-of-a-kind painting is created with great care and attention to detail.
I start with an idea -- a feeling I want to express, a color palette I see in nature, or a vision that comes to me out of the blue. The paint is poured over scrunched up canvas in rich layers of color and I watch to see what develops. It's the process of experimentation and discovery that intrigues me. Rather than trying to control the process, I let serendipity play a part and work with the results.
Each piece is executed with an experienced eye for design and an emphasis on harmony and balance. The canvas is intentionally wrinkled in the process, and the set-in wrinkles add texture and depth to the art. The striking patterns in the finished paintings often resemble animals, insects, people and plants.
When dry, the painting is stretched with the design wrapping around the sides, so it can be hung with or without a frame.
Sustainability is an important part of my artistic practice, and this painting was created using repurposed leftover house paint that would otherwise go to waste.
