ARTIST STATEMENT
Chromophore examines traditions in non-objective painting and explores abstraction’s function in a contemporary context. The paintings express a poetic and colorful relationship between our histories and current visual surroundings. The non-representational imagery serves, as a form of “freedom” and “illegibility” becomes my personal response to the media’s claims of “reality” and “fiction” My method, a systematic layering of photographic ink, water, vinyl and oil based paint, produces renderings that are non-objective (“representing or intended to represent no natural or actual object, figure, or scene”). The resulting composition appears at once familiar and completely ethereal, offering an atmosphere to contemplate the natural and fabricated world.
