ENTER A
NEW DIMENSION

artwork is one of the best expressions of the human soul.
I began creating artwork in 2018, finding a new medium of expression for my creativity, emotions, and life. One of the most profound experiences I’ve had involved getting lost in my first acrylic painting; it was a journey that led me to tears, laughter, and joy. Thank you for viewing my work.

My work spans a variety of themes. Primarily, it involves the story of a young man who is making his way through life without the guidance and wisdom of his father. That young man is me.

About Project

One of my favorite things about creating art is the process, itself. For most of my pieces, I allow the piece to direct each stroke as it happens. Often, this results in many, many layers that are hidden behind the finished painting. 

Life is a lot like artwork; there are many layers behind what you see on the outside of a person. Be gentle with your assessment, and realize the canvas may not yet be complete. 

I often find myself in miniature ‘dark zones’ of emotion, where the sky seems to fall. I’ve learned these moments are simply accents to the canvas of life. Necessary…though, never permanent. 

In this piece, I combine two separate images. The top half of the canvas is composed of a large yellow eye. 

The eye symbolizes perspective. On the right side of the eye is a brightly colored triangle. This represents our ability to cover what we see with a layer of beauty/gratitude. 

To the left of the eye is a small collection of dark streaks. These symbolize our interactions with darkness. Bright blue is used above the streams to signify our ability to always find light/love in a situation. 

On the bottom of the canvas, I created a plethora of triangles. These are symbolic of our world views, and our choice to create them with love – or fear. 

The smallest triangle appears to destruct itself in a burst of purple/yellow. The dark lines chase it down the bottom of the canvas; signifying fear’s ability to destroy. 

The middle pyramid is tall and erect, composed of long purple lines. These symbolize creating something new from the lessons (purple/yellow) of the past. 

Purple, in this case, is used to signify wisdom. 

The third, tallest pyramid has its’ peak lost in the center of the yellow eye. This signifies our highest calling;

Seeing the world through the all-knowing eye of unconditional love.

I’ve found that artwork can be very one-dimensional when viewed.
