Perception of the darkness has an oppressive presence in which blackness is filled with unrecognizable shapes and forms interpreted into a barrage of black wild strokes. Through the deconstruction of the darkness, perception is altered and a true understanding can be ascertained. My artwork involves the investigation and deconstruction of darkness and forms; it establishes a translation of images through the layering of pigments, strokes and textures that the mind omits when submerged into darkness. Forms converge and light will inadvertently emerge, noting not all is black.
