I find beauty and intrigue in old abandoned buildings, in rusted out trains, in leaning wooden water towers. When I look at them I think about the time when they were vibrant and in their prime. I think about the the craftsmanship taken to build them during a time of innovation. Looking closer I absorb the textures, hues and forms. It’s as if they are talking to me, whispering moments that happened when they were active and alive.
It has become my passion, my inspiration, to bring life back to these inanimate objects. This process begins through the lens of my camera. In the editing room I love how highly saturated hues, crisp clarity and full vibrance breaths vitality into these physical forms. The vivid colors that acrylic paints afford gives me the ability to render my notions into a visual semblance on canvas.
