In Search of Connections reveals my continual search for a visceral link between self and other. Through an exploration of gestural marks, the human self and or form is revealed amid the abstract. The underlying connection I feel must be exposed to achieve visual harmony within each piece. Without it, the painting feels unfinished. Every mark I make records each movement and emotion so there is no hiding once I start. The uncomfortable space is enlightening and very addicting. It challenges me to see, feel and expose my subject as well as myself.
