In Movement, a series of watercolor and texture elements on paper, I create small scale paintings that elicit a calm sensation. Organic curvilinear forms travel fluidly across forty individual panels that feather outwards from the central grouping. The relationship between the negative space of the wall and the continuous lines creates a sense of limitlessness or a glimpse of the Infinite. The colors I use – blue, green, and neutrals – are known to be soothing and restful. The sculptural layers of texture lead the viewer to investigate the relationship between solid and fluid elements, and the space in which they exist. Through repetition, I evoke a meditative and restorative state, encouraging one to investigate their own interiority.
My abstract paintings focus on movement, balance, and color to evoke a calming experience. I use watercolor, gouache, and texture mediums to create organic figurative shapes supported by negative space. When I paint, I feel the fluid nature of the paint itself. I want the viewer to feel both engaged and at peace when looking at my work.
