The night sky has been a constant source of inspiration for me since childhood. The notion of the endless expanse and the mystery of the unknown coupled with the infinite possibilities that the universe holds has captured my imagination on a creative and intellectual level.
"Infinity" is my first major series of works developed since my series of paintings titled "Oil Well Fires" produced while earning my B.A. in Art from California State University at Humboldt in 2006.
Consisting of oil on canvas, Infinity explores a visual interpretation of "events" in space, drawing from my youthful imagination and ongoing interest in all things scientific as well as my formal training as a painter from a contemporary perspective. What this series conveys is an abstraction of a limitless reality. The compositions are comprised of explosions of color and form and movement of light. The darkest pool of black space are speckled with fragments of light-filled stars. They are a representation of my connection to and reverence for the great mysteries of the universe.
