MindScapes

MindScapes is a series of soft pastel drawings that represent emotional states of being, created when emotions are intense and overpowering. In its beginning stage, each work is a composite of ill-fitting areas of darkness and bright colors that are forced together, blended and layered upon. Colors crash and bleed into one another as the marks I make on the page explode, recharge and overtake one another. Electric, full body sensations of frustration, anxiety, and despair drive the race to restore calm, using creation as a release. As light shines against the darkness that tries to consume it, what emerges is a beautiful amalgamation of passion, turmoil, compromise, and hope.
