Not Hidden Behind Masks | Mirrored plexiglass | 2021
My art practice deals with color through abstraction, process, and chance operations. Through inspiration from artists like Josef Albers, Jack Whitten, Yayoi Kusama, Peter Halley, and Anne Truitt I started to develop my own art making style. While artists and their artwork have influenced me, I can’t help but also talk about other influences in my life such as the board games I played so often both as a child and as an adult playing with children or with other adults. Other influences are cartoons, anime, role playing games like D&D, and video games. These things became my sources of inspiration for color and my inclination for bright attractive plastic like colors. They made me want to continue the fun and joy I had in life from the games through my work by having the visual pleasure of seeing the highly saturated colors in my own work.
