Through the expressive use of color, my desire is to awaken and transcend the spoken word. Object begins the dialogue.
Informed by the fluxes of our social discourse and sensibility of the environment, a visual language is realized. Influenced by the aesthetics of design, the conceptual aspect is complex, and an important foundation in developing the form. Surface, material, and seriality enforce the physical object supporting the influences of its origin. Seemingly displaced from an industrial or urban environment, the object utilizes the language of color commonly experienced in our daily lives. Hue provides a glimpse into each works individuality, comprised of synthetic and organic emotion.
