My Submersion Paintings examine the scientific properties of painting. They are the result of a refined process that combines washes, staining, and the application of gesso. Their saturated coloration results from the use of synthetic pigments with chemical names such as Pthalocyanine and Quinacridone. Despite their gestural nature and deep coloring (qualities commonly associated with emotion and expression), the Submersion paintings are based in a removed analysis and distanced, procedural approach. Their glowing forms parallel the universal experience of life mediated by backlit iPhone screens and laptops.
