When viewing my work, I invite the viewer to focus on the emotions and feelings evoked from the sight of color and texture. While the overall subject may be of a typical landscape, color creates a more intimate expression depending on how you personally react towards the color. Blue may seem calm while to others it represents gloom. In these specific pieces, highly saturated and complementary colors are fixated throughout the piece to direct the eyes to features typically unnoticed. Another layer of feeling I’ve incorporated is texture. The simulated distortion inhibits the feelings of overstimulation and heightened senses. This collective thought process if sought out by a phrase that I founded and live by :
*FILLING VOIDS WITH DECORATIVE PILLOWS*
*Bringing beauty into something that’s otherwise regular. Although decorative pillows don’t have a purpose other than to look good- the person who curated the selected pillows is expressing what’s aesthetically pleasing from their perspective. We fill our mental and physical gaps with useless crap. If it’s useless at least let it represent the beauty in you.
