Abstraction has become one of the most formidable challenges on my art journey. Using a reference, it’s easy to see the destination; with abstract, you must create your own world. Why this shaped over that one? Why here and not there? Why this color and not that one? I’m fascinated by the decision-making process of it all. As a future-minded, self-diagnosed planaholic, the intrigue lies in letting my intuition guide me, trying not to overthink, and allowing chance to take its turn. As a result, there have been many reroutes and pit stops along this nearly four-year exploration, but I might just finally be starting to get somewhere.
