Time Line, 36in. x 48in., acrylic and collage on canvas, 2011 - 2013

Time Line is a work about the moment at which a situation in life changes drastically for the worse. It's the push and pull of the colored planes that create a dynamism that engages the viewer with a dramatic effect.

The large size enables the viewer to engage deeply with the painting. Through this emersion, I hope the viewer can lose his or herself in the moment at which I entered the 'time line'.

I use the linear landscape model to give the viewer something that is recognizable at first glance.

This technique is reminiscent of Mark Rothko and Richard Diebenkorn.

This is a painting style I like to call 'mind landscape'.
