Ecstatic Paint

Influenced by Symbolism and the early writers who opened our minds to abstraction, like Rimbault, Baudelaire and Mallarme, Ecstatic Paint is a series of paintings that allow the voice of the materials to come forward. Inviting viewers to look at abstract paintings while imagining the sound of each color or detail intensifies their focus. They release themselves to a lucid interplay between the senses, gaining heightened perception about the object's communicative power.
