Artist- Oil on Canvas
My artwork is an evolution of Romanticism and Impressionism. The two eras changed art by injecting emotion, into what otherwise would be a simple landscape. How this was accomplished with dramatic lighting, atmospheric mood, and fluid movement would become my goal in completed artworks. It gave me the opportunity to work through, release, and even escape, my own emotion. The relationship built with the canvas and on the canvas. This is often used in a contemporary context, with multiple canvases used to explore one idea, emotion, crisis.
