Artist Statement

     Both sighed and visually impaired individuals experience color differently; however, they share a common understanding of the abstract concept of color. Blindness in my right eye affects information processing differently from almost everybody else. To me, blindness is not an obstacle, and it has allowed me to grow and discover ways to overcome the challenges I confront throughout my life.

     Color is relative in time and space. Color relationships create dynamic interplay and make it possible to see the invisible color and create new visual sensations. To the viewer, color depends on the light of the surroundings, the background, the form, and the quantity of color. I show a logical arrangement that can guide the viewer’s eyes across the canvas. This logical arrangement powerfully focuses on abstract design. Color is similarly a visceral and even spiritual language that influences my mindset in front of the canvas. These artworks shine a spotlight on the ethereal power of color, which can define the mood or create a specific aura of energy using a simple language that has a spiritual connection. The power of color can immediately improve and refine my soul.

      I use geometric shapes and primary colors on the surface to communicate the language of color. From there, I amplify geometric structures with the brilliance and intensity of saturated color to increase the attention of the viewer. The strategic application of a dynamic movement of hues, repetition in shapes, and rich textures within the forms offers seeds of conversation in my work. It is about a dynamic experience so that the viewer can have sensations. It is about celebrating the experience of seeing color. These works link the boundaries between what we see and what we don’t see through the union of Braille, the language of color saturation, and painting.
