This new series of work explores many ideas. First and foremost I wanted to work with a very broad color palette, ranging from pastels and deep hues to metallics and neon. I am a hunter-gatherer of pigments and I get excited about using them all at once, often viewing color as a way to communicate visual noise. Secondly, I wanted to play with the way abstract and representational forms interact. By interrupting the image with "ugly wallpaper" (lines and color) both directly through and behind the image, I am hoping the viewer has an experience where they are appreciating both the abstract and the representational forms individually and the effect they have on one another to create a unified composition.
