Statement

A painting requires both an instant of perfect clarity, spontaneity and calm as well as a ready hand, trained through years of practice and eager to perform. Each spiral has a rhythm that flows in one continuous motion from beginning to end, moving outwardly from the center. For the drawing to be without flaw, the mind must be undistracted from maintaining the intervals and smoothly amplifying the magnitude of the movement, like a dance to an inaudible music. Most distracting of all is the desire to make a painting. It must be abolished allowing the painting to come of its own accord.

Biography

I am a passionate painter now taking that passion to the field of Computer Graphics and 3D animation. I got my BFA at Cooper Union – an amazing college that formerly offered a full scholarship to all attending students. At Cooper I focused on developing my skills in realistic drawing, human anatomy, landscape painting, color theory, pigments and chromatic effects as well as digital photography.

It was only after graduating that I discovered my voice in abstract painting. It was somehow accidental; I simply started tracing out spirals while doodling idly. Those doodles got larger and became large-scale paintings. It wasn’t long before I started to see that my new works of art could come to life as 3D simulations. The desire to animate the implied motion and volume inherent in my artwork sparked my interest in learning 3D software.

I enrolled in a year of study at New York Film Academy which has been an excellent introduction to the Computer Graphics, VFX and 3D Animation fields. While I do miss painting, my perspective widened much further than the initial goal of animating my art and I discovered new interests and new possibilities.

SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
