Full Artist's statement
The Pop Series
These series’ (The Pop Series I and II) initiated with some automatic sketches that I drew — (I was working from my imagination without a preconceived thought process.)
I decided later to paint these simplistic designs, using bold-popish colors. I made a conscious decision to work in a more graphic style. I had to adjust my normal painting techniques, and experiment with the layering of paint to arrive at the destination that I had already realized in my mind. My goal was to create a bold, uplifting body of work that builds on design and adheres to basic pop aesthetics.
