In Spring of 2018 I received a grant to pursue a project that was unfamiliar to me: an abstract journey. I had noticed a painterly quality emerging in my work, and wanted to see how that manifested in non-objectvie abstraction. Through this grant I created 11 12″x12″ canvases that were playful creations experimenting with ideas, color schemes, compositions, styles, and technques. These translated to 3 36″x48″, 2 30″x60″, and 1 72″x72″ canvases.
From start to finish the entire process was exciting and challenging and has proven to be completely transformative of my whole studio practice. I now consistently produce abstracts and my style, processes, and ideas are ever evolving.
