This collection of works borrows its subtle base from classical Art History imagery, transforming and re-appropriating it, allowing the audience to transcend beyond a typical visual experience. I touched on a pulse of abstract painting, splashing vibrant colors and attempting to alter the veracity of the familiar and historical. Fusion of graphic and drawing techniques that I used “opened” the image in a multitude of new different ways.
By synthesis of old and new, art and reality, the real intention of my work becomes to rouse and inspire. The outcome is the confrontation and reconciliation of the past and present, finding there is no limit, no boundaries, just creation as a driving force.
