My process is an exploration into the utilization of gravity within art, the laws of physics translated to a canvas. More specifically the use of a pendulum to spread paint on a canvas in unique patterns with an emphasis on texture. Jackson Pollock’s Cathedral was an early inspiration for me - seeing that piece at the Dallas Museum of Art was the first time I understood that art is so much more than drawing a pretty picture. Provoking that epiphany in others is what drives me as an artist, and my work is a deconstruction of the notion that art can only be created by the few. It is a fundamental act of expression which we are capable of creating.
