internalization of Put simply - which is what I strive to do visually - my works explore
the inner (shown on the black side) and the outer (white side) worlds
simultaneously. They can also be seen as contrasting visual
representations of both light and dark at once (the dark side is
literally an imprint of the light side). I find the interaction and
variation of shapes, forms, and colors between the two different opposite backgrounds
illuminating, as well as how the two sides relate to create a complete
echoing composition. Part of the challenge of executing the paintings is
in the striving to make each side work visually especially, then, in unison.
Looked at from side to side, they are both the externalization of inner space and the internalization of outer space. Basically, I also really enjoy utilizing black and white as integral elements.
