About the Work
My paintings begin with a simple practice of documenting connections around me on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. I attempt to observe and process how I am navigating my body, relationships, and atmospheres constantly around me. I have always been interested in the unseen systems that we live by, and I felt I could touch on their complexity and elegance through my work. These paintings can be a reflection of a personal experience but they also feel universal. My hope is that the paintings resonate with people from a visual standpoint but also from a emotional and spiritual place.
This large series is mixed media utilizing pen, pencil, pastel, spray paint, and acrylic paint on mylar. The framing process is full of love and care and is inseparable from the artwork. All steel frames are hand made by Katherine Ortiz in her Los Angeles studio. They are constructed with a 10-step process starting with steel flat rods cut, welded, and attached to pine. The drawing is adhered to the panel and the frames are secured with a steel bracket. They are ready to hang with mounting hardware attached.
