The Movement of Color
Born and raised in Southern Ca, I've been painting since I was eight. Whether I was working in the film industry or renewable energy field, I've always painted on the side. Over the years I developed two styles that represent my own internal dichotomy: creativity vs analytics.
The "creative" style is all about the free flowing movement of color. These pieces all start with primary colors (red, blue, yellow) and I lay them down on the canvas in a single sitting, mixing as I go, not cleaning the brush, and racing against time because acrylics dry much faster than oils. Then I go back and define the image with black and white accents. These pieces work really well in children's rooms, nurseries, or for a splash of color on a relatively humble palette.
My "analytical" style is almost the antithesis to the creative in that it's exact and precise. Think of these as a modern riff on Piet Mondrian works from the early 20th century. I use pops of color to create 3-D geometric abstract metropolitan landscapes using painters tape for linear precision. These are great for a slightly more modern decor.
