Tangerine Dream Series – Artist’s Statement

I dream in technicolor and my favorite dreams are houses filled with art. In this series of interior landscapes, I am inspired by working within constraints of color blocks. This allows me the freedom to explore color nuances by keeping the forms simple. It lends itself to the subtleties that emerge by adding layers of color on saturated backgrounds that continue to surprise me without knowing what is going to happen next.

My favorite moments in the studio are when I’m completely in the flow of the creative process and the work takes on a life of its own. I always begin with a visual reference of a sketch, photograph or painting and I am inspired by incredible artists who I consider to be master colorists including Mark Rothko, Pierre Bonnard and James Turrell. The Tangerine Dream series has drawn me in to explore the evocative, mysterious possibilities of monotype.
