Impulsive expressionism. Moments of movement. Spray Paint.
The exploration of self-dialogue with material and atmosphere grants moments of incidental and intentional aesthetics. Art continues to form an inner dialogue between viewer and content. The unconscious movement through painting produces a learning experience for audience and artist. Visual elements and aesthetics within one’s control, judged and defined. Allow oneself to interact with the uncontrollable, to embrace the sense of boundless energy.
