I began each canvas in this series by creating celestial abstractions that explore the raw expressionistic beauty of paint itself. Then to suggest our unifying origins, these abstractions are placed in conversation with the aspects of humanity that are fundamentally raw and universal. I juxtapose the positive themes of sexuality, beauty, and creativity with the guttural vividness of lust, the dull pain of depression, and the melancholy fading of youthful imagination."
