My current work is representative of coming through a trauma, processing and obscuring flash backs and grief. It was personally surprising to find my breakthrough in imagery to be abstraction, keeping the edges blurry and painting thinner and thinner. I trust the content of the paint to convey ideas. I am interested in color relationships that visually flip so it is uncertain what is the subject and what is the ground. Are you seeing an object or looking into a void? It is analogous to the practice and struggle to know ones self.
