On view are vibrant paintings that exemplify an interpretation of the world in its full intensity. From plein-air to the figure, these paintings encompass the essence by exploring the intrinsic characteristics of a subject’s nature that could be described as the ‘everything-of-it-all.’
The plein-air oil paintings embody a colorist point of view. There is a focus on saturated colors, bold shapes, and staggered perspectives. The change of environment through travels inspire a new pallet, a different response, and a memory in essence.
The figure paintings, in oil and acrylics, capture the essence from the outer world and transcends through soulful paintings that marry the history of surrealists. Now called Tracisum ™, also known as “music art” (spelled backwards), is an experimental play on the history of “isms”and automatism, an association to the stream of the subconscious. The stream depicts the inner being that evolves over time, through experience and change. While immersed in music and silence, the enjoyment of “the zone” enhances a rhythmic quality that depicts a design of energy full of emotion, fantastical entities, and a world moving towards unification.
