My work is somewhat intuitive and the use of subjects in my painting is primarily nonexistent, they appear to be represented in my pieces, I usually use non. My compositions are now predominantly non objective. Pure imagination and intuition are relied on heavily. Now when subjects are found in my work they are most often only a perception of my mind. What has become apparent is that I am able to produce paintings based on the external stimuli in my current environment.
I find that immersing myself in cultures and environments apart from my own, yield compositions that would not have come about without exposing myself to new people and places. It is as simple as traveling from city to city or town to town. I find that geographic location can have a significant change in the culture, people, traditions and in the aesthetic of a location. From clothing, local color, architecture, dialect to landscape I found a great divide. I bridge that gap by revealing the beauty that resides within diversity. This is all due to intuitive painting and limiting the use of subjects to make a painting come alive.
That is the thing about my work, I compose based on my intuition. Knowing instinctively how to throw paint on to the canvas with the addition of brush strokes, chop sticks and sponges has become my routine. I merely paint until I no longer can. It is a primal response to my daily exposure to the elements of any give society influencing my perspective. Unaware of the outcome until completely finished it feels as if I were painting with a blind fold covering my eyes.
