Artist's Statement - The 'Visceral' Series, 2016

These abstract expressionist paintings are a direct, intuitive, and intentionally physical expression of my varied, intense, constantly changing, and fleeting, emotional states.

The medium is acrylic and mixed media on canvas, and may also include acrylic gels and textured mediums, paint markers, oil pastels, charcoal, and colored pencil.

I am continuing to explore this series and give a visual voice to emotion.
