For me, beauty is what I strive for. That is the essence of my being. When I create, I want the beauty and the joy I experience to shine through and speak to the viewer. I want to overload the senses. Mine and yours.
In all three of my techniques, layering is crucial for me. It builds a history that is only mine. The viewer may be fascinated by this or resist it. Either way I have done my job as artist and creator of my sensibilities.
In the Alchemy Series painting becomes alchemy. I blur the lines between the spiritual, the physiological and science. I combine crushed metals in their base form with pigment in an attempt to create life affirming, multi-layered, ethereal dreams. In each painting I use no fewer than 25 layers.
In the Intoxication Series, I use alcohol inks and I am led by the ink itself. I devote myself to the palette but the alcohol ink has a mind of its own. I am driven by the unexpected. The boldness of the palette speaks to my longing for beauty.
My Encaustic work, speaks for itself. Again my fascination with layers is apparent. The wax has its own mind. I can lead it, but I am not the master. As in all my work the medium says what it need to, and I take a back seat as the artist. My only intention is the hope that I speak to the viewer. Working with Encaustic medium is difficult and dangerous. It is a combination of using hot wax and fire.
As in all the mediums I use, there is the element of physical danger. Each one is toxic and one is on fire. I like the experience of creating my aesthetic and taunting death at the same time. I find myself intoxicated by it.
