As the abstract expressionists were focused on process of painting as a tie into human expression itself post World War, this necessary need to explore the meaning of the human is more important than ever, especially as our world becomes increasingly founded in the sterile environments of algorithms and robotic energies. The need to create raw, unfiltered paintings not produced on thousands of products, charges the epicenter of my creative process and my artist mission. I ask the hard questions: where is art heading if it is constantly rooted in the perfectible existence of a filtered feed of untruthful and biased color coded photos? Where does our identity end up if we are complacent in our own roboticization and belief in an ideal that doesn't exist? Whether abstract or semi-abstract in form and composition, art, and consequently...my art, must focus on providing and retaining art's ability to transgress fads and popularity to offer the ability to see perspective. Art creates culture, but it also provides culture with ways of seeing anew in exploration, analysis, and awareness. Art's function is to provide more depth to our world of surfaces and perfection permeating our mediated devices and screens. Art gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on where we are and where we are heading, and to call out the imperfections and fallible natures of ourselves in a loving and accepting way. We are imperfect and the ways in which we strive to be perfect may actually be our undoing. My art questions through abstract and semi abstract expression, not only the means at which expression is to be produced and mastered, but why we must cling to and hold tight to ourselves as messy, often failing and wailing, living creatures.
