"My most current work is in expressionist paintings where I work with oil and mixed media on canvas. I create vibrantly colorful images of cartoony and disproportionate characters and scenes pulling from a 1980’s pop-culture palette inspired by my childhood, and I work the canvas with rough brush strokes as I freely transfer thoughts and images onto the canvas like a pencil in a personal sketchbook. Words, phrases, and sometimes even short poems are written, crossed out, and replaced in the paintings to create fractured narratives. Although my images may appear fun and playful, upon closer examination, they can reflect an uncanny underlying nature."
The Empty Space Gallery is located at 706 Oak St. Bakersfield CA, 93304.
