My recent works reference the frailty of life, using the juxtaposition of water and fire. A few steps of my process include painting a 2-D image over a traditionally stretched canvas, and then destroying the object with fire, which provides a sculptural 3-D finish. My work utilizes smell, as it's forth-dimensional quality. I also enjoy the content and symbolism associated to water and fire, both conceptually and physically, and their relationships with mankind.
Abstract expressionism has had a major influence in my life. I am concerned with materials and the expression of gesture along with mark making. Fire is so closely associated to each and every one of us. When a viewer experiences my work I hope to spark a memory of how fire has personally affected them or someone close to them.
As a young individual underwhelmed by todays social posts and electronics, I strive to create works of art that provide a prosthetic memory. I hope to tap into the viewers true self and arouse an appetite for awareness. Tomorrow is never guaranteed; we have to live in the moment. These individual bodies of work posses' a presence of water and fire, life and death. I view this act of destruction as an act of creation.
Feeding off the Avant-garde approach to picture making, the art that I create is destroyed for my generation. I am part of a greater whole, a part of the NEO-AB-X movement. I believe there is no past. I believe there is no future. I believe there is only infinite now. These are the thoughts of an Individual Genius Narcissistic Latteralist.
