ABOUT THIS COLLECTION
One new train of thought is all it takes to provoke measurable change. As artists, we are social leaders whom are bestowed the responsibility of documenting history as the unrelenting truth that it is. We are rapidly destroying our one and only home here on Earth. Mother Nature has never been more furious with us. As technology advances and new chemicals are created, we are losing sight of the most beautiful gift we’ve been given: the world around us.
As a reminder of this gift, the artwork I create is derived from completely natural products. I extract my “paint” pigments from food sources you can find at a local grocery store. My kitchen has become my studio. I boil, bake, chop, blend and strain an array of foods, detaching them from their fibrous material, and using them on a canvas.
This new series is still in the beginning stages, but aims to promote and document a shift in perspective. We preach change, carry vegan leather, eat clean, recycle, and still use toxic chemicals to make art. We do not need turpentine or spray paint. We simply need the vegetation found around us.
The simplistic beauty that surrounds us everyday can now be seen on a canvas; illuminating the natural colors found all around us, and bringing light what we may one day destroy. A new train of thought, riding in on rails that were laid by cave dwellers many centuries ago.
