Artist Statement: Schism

This series was born out of my Along the Path series. It continues to build from my connections to the past and nature but approaches from a more emotional view point. The heightened colors bring a more visceral eye-catching visualization to each painting. The colors are representative of the emotions tied into the memories associated with each work. Additionally, this series explores breaking out from the traditional sizes and shapes of standard artwork. The vivid color and variety of shape help to express the vast visual language each painting shows.
