Artist Statement

My Silicone paintings are influenced by the Miami lifestyle, depicting stylized contemporary interpretations of water, the ocean and crashing waves using Silicone and resins as my materials. My works reflect and mimic movement and textures of the ocean and it's translucent qualities. I use a caulk-gun as my brush to drip silicone onto panels forming 3-dimensional line drawings. With the silicone dripping method I am able to create lines that are skinny, wide, long, and short. Some areas are blocked in with strategic dripping patterns building patches of silicone textures throughout my paintings.
