Carnivale; Acrylic on canvas; 36×24 inches


Though not strictly gestural, I would describe my abstract works as a truth told in that moment of making; an expression of feeling as expressed through broad strokes, deliberate marks, and thick applications of paint. I may start with a blank canvas but my hope is that, by the end of the visual narrative, I would have successfully captured my personal journey through shape, color, texture and movement.
