Inspired by the visual vocabularies of urban décor and decay, graphic design and illustrative tattoo art, I allow these sources to infuse the work with both a psychological and visual vibrancy.
These paintings are characterized by spontaneous mark making, layering, and dynamic composition. I utilize many of the materials and techniques characteristic of street art, remnant of my shadowy aerosol conquests.
Emulative of Action Painting, the base of the works are playful with dynamic energy, while foreboding undertones stamp the surfaces. Working in a method of automatism the subconscious allows to define the process and outcome.
