I feel freer in open expanses in which I can orient myself and connect to whatâs going on around me. With a clear line of sight, I can let my guard down and develop a kind of sixth sense through which I feel myself as part of something greater than myself. The phenomena of branches silhouetted by the light, a passing storm, clear water at the beach, the golden hour as the sun drops are fleeting moments that speak to me as something more eternal. When I find a moment of solitude in any setting, my sight is heightened, and I see colors and the play of light and shadow more intensely. I observe the shifts of atmospheric light, allowing me to experience being part of the wider world even in my studio or in my apartment. Abstracting these ephemeral experiences into geometric shapes, plotting lines, and color relationships allows the viewer to share in my search for the transpersonal.
