I was inspired by the work of JMW Turner and Nicolas de Stael. Turner for his use of color and De Stael for the simplicity of his abstract landscapes.
I begin with a palette-knife underpainting that allows me to create a surface full of small stipples of paint. This decadent surface of textures brings my abstraction to life. In addition, the color, shapes, and subtle allusions in my title leads you through the emotional subject of my work.
The use of soft greens and neutrals in combination with black, symbolizes the hidden, the mysterious and the unknown. It creates a sense of mystery and keeps things to itself, hidden from the rest of the world. I hope that the viewer experience all of these feelings too.
