    Description

     

    Inspired by ornament, I experiment with techniques of painting to create an imaginative response to conflict on canvas. My work references social and environmental issues.
    Global warming affects seawater temperatures causing coral bleaching. A short-term survival tactic by coral polyps results abnormally in the collapse of the entire structure of the reef system over time. Mass bleaching events have occurred in various parts of the world in the past few decades. Coral reefs are an important part of our ecosystem. Several species of sea life depend on the reefs for survival, which directly and indirectly affects our sources of food and livelihood. As life comes full circle, it could ultimately create a chain reaction that directly impacts our survival on this planet.   
    I want to engage the viewer through a different discourse through artistic process and expression. Through mark making and the power of ornament, my work expresses a need for change and explores the possibility of the new.

    I admire originality and am a sucker for interesting surface treatment especially when it courts that fine edge between abstraction and representational art.

    Are you kidding me?

    Needs more work and discipline. Keep painting but learn foreshortening and composition skills. Skies run from back to front and front to back.....not top to bottom. I'm not preaching, I'm just educating.

    PATTERNS, ETC

    I love the light in this piece. Watercolor is such a beautiful medium when executed properly like this. Kudos to Chris on this piece. Love the folding of cloth with the black and white pattern. Great job!

    Those Gleams

    These mandarins look good enough to peel and eat and the gleams make them highly realistic. Against the colorful quilt, they just pop!

    Magical

    Very unique. I like it the more I look at it. I am very intrigued by the fact it's glow-in-the-dark

    I love the way you created the sense of distance in this painting. Depicting the horizon line on a slight curve is very effective!
