Painting for me is a constant exploration of mark making and how this can create a sense of emotion, speed, density, and strength. Using an ellipse and repeating this mark, I try to engulf the viewer in the space, also using color to hypnotize and keep the viewer interested in finding new areas of the space to explore.

 

When first using the ellipse to make a shape I was inspired by raindrops hitting puddles of water and the ripples that were made as a result. At first the paintings were more literal with abstracted elements.  As time has gone on the ellipses have more of their own personality and take on more than just water ripples. In this exploration I have explored ellipses in different mediums, sizes, and textures to experiment what makes the ellipses function as an art piece. In doing so I have discovered that the ellipses can have more than one emotion, density, and texture to communicate to the viewer.
