Artist Statement Submitted 2019“The aim is to reveal the invisible.” Paul Klee
Although my work addresses what is perceived visually, the aim is to embrace the seen and the unseen.
The flat surface of a painting can become a portal that transports the viewer to the space the artist is experiencing, remembering, or imagining at the time of the creating. The visual art I create is an attempt to engage the viewer in their own experience of that space, to put the viewer "in" the space.
I believe art is understood beyond conscious experience. By limiting the amount of visual information given to the viewer, the viewer subconsciously "fills in the blanks" and experiences the actual space themselves, transcending traditional perceptions of monochronic time, of “here” and “there”.
