My Contour series explores the relationship between line, form and color. The spatial attributes found in the interaction of these elements direct my focus, and the associated feeling pulls it all together. The premise is geometric abstraction, where I begin by hand drawing organic shapes and forms to create symmetry and flow within an evolving composition. With this new process, I work with digital painting techniques and a collective layering process, sometimes adding photography to the mix, when I feel it's needed to complete my vision. There is a freehand expressive quality to each work that is unique to this series. The works are printed on cotton linen canvas and are hand embellished with oil based pigments and cold wax application to further enhance depth and add dimension.
