Acrylic and Ink on Wood
By investigating different perspectives and using bold colors, I recreate everyday places. My process begins by either photographing or sourcing photos of spaces, from which I create collages. The collages are finished pieces and are references for my acrylic paintings. My references determine what textures and applications to use before painting each layer. After painting I add details with ink giving them an illustrative style. Through recreating these spaces, I reinvent the world using my imagination, but still including parts of reality.
Working with acrylic paint on wood panel, I use tape to form the shapes within the piece. As a final layer, I draw on the paintings giving the series an animated style. My work is derivative of original collages. Used as references, they are imaginative recreations of my own photographs.
