YARN Strictly for the Birds

As a painter, I have always loved the connection between visual and communicative content. I believe that people are always more passionate about what they understand, so chose to express my personal experiences in an attempt to remain honest. Consequently, every painting I create is deeply personal and contains a slew of subtle metaphors. The YARN, or exaggerated fable, in this series is the illustrated translation of my life story. My visual inspiration for YARN: Strictly for the Birds, include early 20th century advertisements, Japanese ink drawings, and wood block prints. I enjoy creating spatial tension between the manufactured depth created through the encaustic and the flattening effect of thick contour lines. Colors are chosen carefully and repeated to provide clues to the viewer. Not only is this series strung together by its story, but by the manipulation of color, the placement of vintage patterns and textures, and the juxtaposition between loose and meticulous brush strokes.
