My current focus has become an internal process of re-purposing my own art. In part, to find a larger voice as well as exploring boundaries beyond job specifics. I am in a unique position to have an existing body of work primarily based on pop culture imagery created for specific and singular purposes. There is a certain element of play and artistic freedom in dismantling these images and abstracting them into new organic constructions. I’ve found that in developing this process, every line revisited still holds a personal history and a memory. The results are perhaps best described as a form of visual chatter. A feeling not unlike entering a room full of people all talking at once.
The process itself is a tactile tête-à-tête between control and spontaneity. My linear work is quite specific and sets the tone as an initial voice. However, I maintain a loose concept of where each piece might go. Multiple layers of colors add and subtract positive and negative shapes in an exchange of speed, cadence and volume equivalent to the mood as it evolves.
