The abstract Nightcap illustrates the use of street art and graffiti as my own visual language. Just as I explore a city while photographing graffiti (selecting what images to capture for color, line and patina), the layering of street ephemera in my abstract work is a process of discovery. Each gesture becomes an individual drawing, the gesture is imbued with the color of graffiti walls and hand printed on the surface as the composition builds layer by layer, intertwined with my own gestures, acrylic paint, spray paint and other mediums. A very textural piece where the sides are incorporated into the entire work. Nightcap lowers the viewer’s blood pressure and feels like one is slipping into a blissful nocturnal dream.
