The Blue Wound

The painting by Alonso Cano and Yves Klein have influenced me greatly since first viewing them. They are strong, emotional compositions for different reasons making further representation unsurpassable. The two artists used light, color and composition to create an artistic divine sensibility for the visible and invisible.

I combined 17th century baroque pictorial ideas and 60's neo-Dadaists elements to create a picture with transcendental luminescence. Merging corporeality with conceptual freedom to create form that is embodied. Rather than portraying physical light, I use color to represent transcendence.
