Portal Ghosts is a series that brings us back to NYC after spending time abroad in France. It is a series that came out with more spiritual experiences happening in my neighborhood of Clinton Hill. More ghosts coming through the channel that is painting to tell their stories through movements, colors and the placement of these things in the moment. I named this series Portal Ghosts because they literally are portals that transport you to places on the other side of what we would call reality. This series was painted end of Summer / Fall 2013.
WHAT I LEFT BEHIND.
What I left behind series deals with the past. It is a series that comes from a time in life when I was going through the most difficult transformation of my life thus far. These pieces showcase in colors a time period where I did not know how to properly express myself based on new terms. It was a regurgitation of the past over and over again. You can see the lack of development in the pieces as they reflect my own lack of development and understanding of myself not only as an artist but as a person. These are those fragments left behind from a time period that will never be able to be recreated. These pieces were painted from 2001 – 2008.
