TRANSMISSION

The work in TRANSMISSION represents four years of exploration with experimental applications of paint and stencils, metaphoric color palettes, surface design, and representation of a range of human emotions and experience. 
Included in this exhibition are The Eclipse Viewer series. This series uses a discrete palette of 4 colors and silver leaf. The palette, informed by elements dispersed by ancient supernovae includes iron, calcium, carbon, and phosphorus, rendering a connection between the observers and what Carl Sagan called “star stuff.” The phosphorescent backgrounds of the paintings glow in the dark creating a secondary version of each composition.
START SCREAMING: A series of portraits of the unfiltered and unguarded emotions that culminate in screaming are tense personal moments where we are at our most vulnerable. START SCREAMING presents an unbridled display of frustration, joy, anger, injustice, rage, vindication, or simply a release of steam.
The Crowds: A series of paintings depicting large groups of people walking, converging and intermingling. A partial response to the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as a celebration of things we cherish as a community.
Complimenting the exhibition are new surface designs that make reference to the themes of my paintings: astronomical events, wonder of the natural world and a quest for knowledge.
