A new series “evolutions” is more ‘evolved’ than my other series and in this sphere of my process.
Throughout this whole series, I am leaving negative space, which emphasizes the colored area and it seems to dramatize the piece as a whole.
I am less heavy handed, but yet more into detail, even painting under magnification.
The tunnel seems to keep getting deeper the further I go. And the vast plain of color, shape and hue widens before me.
Like nature, it is about shapes within shapes within shapes. And the countless hues that belong to color.
I strive to create art that is intrinsic, extremely interesting visually, compelling, I would say.
My paintings can cause Paraidolia, which is the mind’s tendency to interpret, or be selective when faced with an abundance of random visual stimulation.
The definition being: a psychological phenomenon that causes people to see patterns in a chaotic or random stimulus. This often leads to people assigning human characteristics to objects. Usually this is simplified to people seeing faces in objects where there isn’t one.
It is seeing faces or other human characteristics in a ‘seemingly’ random display of colors and shapes, or an abundance of visual stimulation. Sometimes it’s animals, fantastical and monstrous beings, or even objects.
I encourage this phenomenon.
