Artist Statement and Information

    The still life paintings are inspired from old Dutch master still life paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries with a modern twist. This series started as good habits and bad habits. Eventually they turned into mostly bad habits. After all, they are more fun. 

     The ink gesture drawings in the training room were done using a Japanese ink brush pen on paper during dance rehearsals at the Carlsen Center located on the Johnson County Community College campus. These drawings are an attempt to express the energy, tension and movement of both the dance rehearsal session and my skills as a visual artist. In part, these drawings were inspired from a trip to Mongolia with brief stops in South Korea and China. Visiting a Shaman’s “ger” (a nomadic dwelling also known as a “yurt”) in the steppes of Mongolia, I had the opportunity to see a woman demonstrate traditional Mongolian calligraphy using ink and brush. To me, Mongolian script looks like a mixture of Korean and Arabic writing. It has flowing lines and circles written in a vertical format. Rather than duplicating or emulating this style, these drawings are an exploration of a similar medium expressing modern dance.
Artwork is available for purchase.
