Senior Art Exhibit 2005
My processes are both additive and subtractive, removing paint and caustic and adding until only the amount necessary for conveying a work's meaning remains. These complexities, motions and interactions are bound together by a unifying rhythm and texture. The aesthetic design is driven by the overall concept, so the forms are both beautiful and meaningful. This composing of formal relationships (structure amidst the deconstructed) captures the true nature of Pike Place market. The sound of a harmonica, the random path of a wandering tourist, the apple vender with her bright green apples, all these elements, along with countless others co-exist in the open-air market environment. I capture the essence or spirit of a market place through random patterns, overlapping colors, textured patches, and vibrant interactions of line and shape.
