Behind Space is my latest series of paintings. Each painting repeats the same composition — a rectangle that echos the shape and proportion of the surface it is painted on. This composition relates to our body’s rectangular shape by mimicking architectural forms we interact with regularly. The colors derive from gradients found in the sky, from sunrise to sunset and moments between. These elements are intended to allow viewers to experience color and space in a way that is familiar and embedded in the memory of the collective consciousness.
My intent for these paintings is to create an accessible and familiar visual experience that is both physically and metaphysically engaging.
