Abstract

Through the use of stains, resulting from a process of water and pigments, I showcase the metaphorical importance of stains within our lives. Nature, the everyday, and our bodies have always been an inspiration to my process. Instances such as looking through car windows at the colors rushing past, becoming one, as I travel 60 miles per hour. These moments of moving colors that blur the line between object and pigment are where I find inspiration formally and conceptually. These instances of blurs happen constantly in our lives. Not just because we are moving so fast, but because we can be too wrapped up in our own world to acknowledge them. It is overlooked instances such as these that I find most inspiring and humbling, and that which I want to give life to through my art.
