chapter/ layer 6
“I knew right away that my focus was on the color. So the paintings themselves would be entirely covered with only one color -- one that would capture emotion by its bold presence, but still let me focus on certain aspects of technical approaches. I figured that having a large amount of one color could only stimulate the cones (photoreceptors) in my eyes further, leaving little room for distractions -- silhouetted shapes, for instance. This would compel viewers to reach for something more, to understand what they were looking at. Being forced to do so would trigger different parts of the brain. My ultimate goal here was to allow people to feel the energy, yet reach a logical understanding.”

This series in particular as been nearly impossible to document due to the high color saturation and finish. Therefore the best representations are found in the installation page where the work can be seen within its surroundings. see here...
