Transformation Series

This was a series that I worked on exploring the many layers of transformation involved within the making of a painting. Each painting consists of several areas of manipulated medium which are then collaged pieced together and further transformed through layers of paint. This results in an image that has unusual depth and dimension. They carry a mood about them that is expressed in the interplay of how each mark is blended into the next, drawing the viewer in as they attempt to discern the foreground from the background.  Colour is a large part of what I respond to as I attempt to capture a mood or feeling. This series also mirrored symbolically a transformation that was underway within my own art process.
