ART 25 Artist Series
September 1 - November 31 2017
Exhibition title : Mystically Entwined
Artist reception- October 25th, 2017
I am intrigued with creating visual language to interpret experience. My earliest inspiration as an artist was influenced by the Russian mystic, Wassily Kandinsky, who reached into the emotionally provocative aspects of abstract art with intensely saturated and colorful forms. As my work and I evolve, I continue to expand upon the nuances of abstract, ephemeral arrangements as a sort of emotional confession. Using intermingled lines and forms, I attempt to translate, explore, and express individual identity entwined in and influenced by our collective environment.
January 1 - March 30 2018
My work is based on cave interiors, especially the formations of flowstones, stalactites, and stalagmites. Humans have been drawn to caves for a very long time, and I am no exception. During the past fifteen years, I have visited more than 80 caves and photographed the environments. The artwork is inspired by these images.
Shake Shack facts!
Did you know Shake Shack supported the arts from its inception?! Shake Shack sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. We are proud to support New Haven artists. The New Haven Shack is located on Chapel Street near the New Haven Green and Yale’s Old Campus.
