Abstract

The paintings in this master’s thesis exhibition represent my daily encounters over the past three years. The hurricanes of 2005 made me realize how nature can be ugly and destructive one day and peaceful and beautiful the next. My paintings are abstractions of imagery representing the disrupted landscapes and personal obstacles left behind by the storms, along with my optimistic vision of a harmonious world. I describe my experiences through the search for a delicate sense of balance that excites and then quiets the mind. The painting is created through an intense interaction between me, the materials and the surface, creating something new and unique. My abstractions are full of energy, color and texture that represent days of turmoil to days of complete relaxation.
