Artist's description:

Texture, gesture, and bold contrasting colors are the key elements in my most recent abstracted work. Heavily influenced by NASA images, my work explores the natural, surreal chaos of the cosmos. I am fascinated by the perfection of our universe and the human need to explore and question our true beginnings.

Nebulas, galaxies, star dust, and solar flares are featured in many of the examples. Texture is achieved through multi media which include drywall and drywall joint compound, acrylic, and pastel. I begin with a layer of joint compound or modeling paste on the canvas and within that I create a rough composition sketch using my hands. I like to feel part of my work and most of the texture is created with the palms of my hand and my fingertips. I decide where objects will be placed and where the heaviest texture will work with the composition . After this hardens I begin to paint. Often,I choose colors with a strong contrast and often include metallic golds and silvers to enhance the luminescence of the stellar scenes.
