As an artist with a strong interest in the outdoors, my work focuses on the beauty of the natural world. I want to depict the dynamism and vibrant vitality of the landscape and of the life that inhabits it by interplaying intricate spaces with broader expanses of color. By working quickly with both palette knife and brush, I aim to infuse a sense of motion in my work.
Color Thrills brings together work created during 2011, while pursuing a BFA at Texas Christian University, in addition to paintings completed more recently. I hope that viewers of this exhibit can sense some of the excitement that I have when creating paintings. My goal is to create successful pieces that are an inspiration to others’ vision. -- Avery J.
