The work explores the relationship between color field and transcendentalist painting, inspired by the idea of capturing light and color from the places I hold dear. The scale of the work creates an immersive environment- inviting the viewer to be transported into a stillness that is both contemplative and meditative. The work is both atmospheric and encompassing, free from objective context thus allowing color to become the subject in itself.
