Mixed media work on paper | 2017

Atmosphere and continuity are big themes in all of my work. For the Tidal series, I drew on a palette of earthy pigments, vaporous veils of color, and delicate markings to create a sense of the fragility and strength of the natural world. As in nature, elements in the paintings replicate, change, fade, and return over and over.

The cotton rag paper sucks everything dry. Deep colors are layered over and over as they are soaked up. Pens and pencils take on a slightly velvety quality, wax crayons merge seamlessly with the surface. The rag paper takes everything in and is resistant to giving anything up.
