My current work is inspired by the jazz music of early pioneers such as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Charlie Mingus, Sonny Clarke and dozens of others. The movement, rhythm, instruments and “colour” of the music opens a portal to an unexplored world – through the looking glass. My work is also influenced by the abstract movement of the fifties, by artists such as Willima de Kooning, Franz Kline and the early work of Renata Bernal. The synchroncity of the time period of the early jazz movement along with modern abstract movement is a powerful inspiration in my work. I use acrylic paint and canvas weaving color and texture to inspire people to see what’s not there.
