ARTIST STATEMENT

These paintings are light studies. Light assists us in understanding landscapes, by experiencing the magnitude and direction in which it allows our vision to flow. As light moves it creates a dialogue between forms by defining them and their negative spaces. By concentrating on light as its own entity, I explore how it manipulates itself around objects and is distinguished through mood. The process of recording this subject matter is important for me to share, with the goal of understanding a simple, intimate moment.
