Expression of Struggle and Frustration
My work focuses on the expression of struggle and frustration. My paintings are oil on canvas or panels and are a combination of representation and abstraction. I use large scale canvases to make a more powerful statement. In my work, color expresses the emotions of defeat and elation that come with striving to communicate. These emotional poles may occur separately or together. I use my work to bring attention to these intense feelings that go along with the ups and downs that many of us feel in our lives for a variety of different reasons.
