I love saturated color, whimsical characters and fantastic, dreamlike imagery informed by iconic elements from our collective visual culture.
Some of my current projects involve large colorful paintings and murals, lit by intense saturated color-changing LED lights (“kinetic light”); This method causes the colors in the painting to seem to flip, move and swap as the light color changes, highlighting different forms and hidden elements. As the lighting cycles through various combinations of colors, the pigments also appear to change color, swap and move in surprising ways, forming a moving wall of color and shape.
