I have no interest in replicating what I see. What excites me as an artist is to interpret what I see, combine it with what I know, how I feel, and what I have to say.
This type of work requires viewers and consumers of my work to be very open-minded. To ask questions and hopefully illicit thoughts that may be new and unexpected. Odd colors and other unusual design combinations may encourage the viewer to ask lots of questions or start a conversation.* [why is the artist using these colors? What do they mean? Why are these shapes placed in this way? What's the purpose of the clusters of symbols?*]
I truly think that being different and unusual opens the possibilities of shedding new light in compelling ways.
If you usually gravitate towards representational work, I would encourage you to open your mind, and truly take the time to look at new, non-traditional and unexpected approaches. You may be pleasantly captivated!
