LOVE OF BEAUTY IS TASTE. THE CREATION OF BEAUTY IS ART. — RALPH WALDO EMERSON
I suppose it is also worth mentioning that I have had no formal training as an artist, whatsoever. In fact, up until a year ago, I had barely every drawn at all, save for a few pictures here and there as a young child and preteen. In fact, I once signed up for an art class at a local mall, only to be told during the first class that I had no talent and that I should reconsider my interest in art. After that, I would focus my attentions on music, spending several years refining my skills as a competitive flutist.
“I believe we are living masterpieces coloured with energy. Everything in the universe, when stripped down to the very core is made up of this positive and negative energy. For me, the energetic movement of paint across canvas captures this; the way it flows and moves much like the ebb and flow of life. Painting is the only time I really feel I have control. If it doesn't turn out the way I want it to, then I change it. Same as life, really. We are all given this beautiful blank canvas from birth and we choose what colours will fill our days. Like an artist, we have the same power to change the final image. A blank canvas presents infinite possibilities and reminds me to be in the present moment.
I draw inspiration from images both past and present, light and dark, often times combining the two in hopes of creating a counterbalanced symmetry. My goal is to take the seemingly unimaginable and make it a visual reality by blurring the lines between the real and the surreal, creating a story where final interpretation is open to multiple realizations. There are a number of paths in my work... which one is ultimately chosen is left for you to decide.
