Acrylic on Canvas
3ft x 4ft
In the work “Provider,” I used a style of Patternism to create pictures of birds. This painting was made through a process in which I created abstract backgrounds, consisting of repeated straight lines, squares, and dots. I then used black and white paint to create an image. Animals have been the theme for the last several years, and with the abstract background as my starting point, I channel my own experiences to come up with an art that is autobiographical, and universal. In the work “Provider,” the birds could be a representation of my own life in which I am providing for my two daughters as a single Dad. We EMBRACE our family.
