View Artist Statement
Light and color, as a subject, are used to explore feelings of awe and excitement felt during fleeting moments of celebration. Light is an intangible force, but through artistic processes, it can be captured and realized as tangible and physically felt. The act of celebration is a constructed experience, where we temporarily transform a space for amusement and spectacle. Ephemeral worlds are formed to investigate that construction and to convey lively moments through photography and oil paint.
