CANVAS PIECES 2006-2010
Below are some recent and older art pieces which are for sale
It is my goal to impact the emotion of everyone who sees my work, so that the initial viewing affects their mind and heart before they can perceive the visual aspect with their eyes. I believe that art can touch us this way and be a messenger directly to the subconscious.

TASTE THE SEAS
When creating this original art, my intention is to involve the observer as much as possible in the story being portrayed by the art piece.
Therefore, every piece is thought of and created by imagining the final canvas as a 3D creation (as if one were to peek into a room) that draws the observer into the story. This is why a reflecting sphere is always present within the view of the person looking at the piece. Additionally, I want the observer to feel the emotion of the characters illustrated in each piece, thus, the figures do not wear clothes and their bodies are composed of a network that reflects their nature (result of life’s effect on the body) and emotional state.
I believe that art can touch us this way and can exist as a messenger that probes through our skin and bones directly to the subconscious. The current show explores the notion of perception of reality and how it is portrayed in painting on 2D canvas. I examine the changing structures of the world and the energy waves associated with this metamorphosis.

A painting should evoke a thought, a memory or idea to the viewer. -BrRice-
