Abstract Texture Painting

Acrylic painting on gallery canvas, 12″ x 24″, 2013

This is a retro modern inspired abstract painting. I like to invent paintings that create a playful atmosphere, so I use found objects and artifacts to create deep textures and color effects. Many of my paintings are 20 to 30 layers deep with textures to create paintings that feel tactile, sculptural, an experience.

When you’re a child and see paintings for the first time you have an irresistible need to touch them, I am fascinated to evoke that memory and then amplify that desire.
