This work is first conceived as a digital collage, usually of digitally hand painted elements. The composite image is then fused onto the aluminum tiles through the process of dye sublimation. It is the dye sublimation process that allows the art to withstand the elements outdoors and also is responsible for the brilliant depth of color. 108″ x 112″, Dye Sublimation, Aluminum, Steel.
Art is the unique expression of life and its beauty. My concept is to bring art, which is life, to life. The large format reflects my philosophy of making life, and its beauty, something you cannot ignore. It commands your awareness to something within the art being offered to you. All my pieces are meant to bring beauty to life and in the process awaken the viewer to the aliveness and beauty within them. I believe awareness of the divine expression can transform individuals and change the world; my art is my contribution.
“One moment can change a day, one day can change a life and one life can change the world.” – Buddha
