Poppies, mixed media, 4'x5'
My modus operandi changes and is often based on random events and continuous external agitation. Sometimes I start a painting or sculpture by jumping in spontaneously, arranging shape, color, and form until it intuitively spurs a direction or inspiration. Other times, inspiration comes more directly in the way of metaphors from film, books, iconic images, life etc…that typically lead to a deeper meaning and understanding. My recent work in cardboard was inspired by The Seven Deadly Sins and evolved from there into the Land of Oz. I wanted to create big bold and colorful pieces.
