A continuation of Perspectives from 2017 but taking a closer look at the world we live in. It incorporates imagery from my home state of Missouri, photos I’ve taken, photos my friends have taken, petals from flowers from my Grandmother’s funeral, and images from Hubble (as a nod to my last series, “Perspectives”.
In this collection I also continue my journey over the last five years to break myself from having to use a strict reference to create my paintings. It’s a range of works that explore the balance between using partial references and the lack thereof. I manipulate borrowed photographs by reforming them, and then alternate from using the image for guidance to simply using my own discernment. Instead of being a slave to my reference, I am better able to focus on strengthening my composition and creating more spirited color harmonies.
Currently represented and on display at Obelisk Home, Springfield, MO.
