My work deals with creating the connection of humans to nature by placing the body in motion in abstracted landscapes where the figure merges with its environment. In my new series “Moving Meditations” I’m interested in creating that almost symbiotic connection. There is a vibration that unites every living thing and I use color to raise that awareness. I blend the moving figures with the changing landscape to signify our close affiliation with it and that we are all going to change together. I’ve been dancing my entire life and as a painter focusing on the body allows me to incorporate the aesthetics of the dancer’s body and the line it draws in space with the delineations and sequences on the canvas.
