My industrial influenced mixed media abstractions are distinguished by multiple layers of texture, color and organic forms. These abstract works are gritty, less refined reminders of the ever-present tension between man and nature.
I draw inspiration from vacant factories and buildings. Some of which were in Asheville’s River Arts District as well as other timeworn structures in and around town.These works combine non-traditional materials with a multilayer approach. This heuristic process involves numerous cycles of building up and strip- ping away. I’m less concerned with preserving the surface, but rather discovering what lies beneath.
My current work and collections focus on the transformative power of air and water.
