My goal has always been to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary art through my painting.
I feel that my work on multiple layers of acrylic glass is my nexus work, in that it is singular in style, approach, application, medium, and end result. Painting on both sides of five layers of glass creates an intricate puzzle that is 3-dimentional, sculptural, and kinetic.
I like to say that these paintings have ‘five-noses’ because the work offers a variation of experience from many different perspectives; from a distance and up close, as the daylight shifts throughout your home and light and shadows play within the layers, to the warm firelight interacting on the surface at night. These paintings are kinetic works, alive within their environment, becoming ‘living' paintings as you move around exploring their many depths. Looking into these trees is a surreal experience that is best done in person.
