Artist Statement

I recently completed the body of work in the In Loving Color show using my synesthetic interpretation of music as inspiration, where each piece relates to a different song. I used the colors and motion of the song (as I see it in my head) to create a visual experience of the music.

Think about the differences in the way we experience the world. Even at a sensory level, we see, taste, or hear the world differently. It is as though our brains are making order out of the chaos around us in different ways. I sometimes light my artwork on fire, which provides chaos. After the burn, I add intricate details, making order out of the chaos.
