Abstract

Darkness & Light is a narrative body of work that reflects upon recent changes in my life. The series begins dark and abstract and becomes lighter and more refined with each artwork, functioning as a visual timeline. The chosen color palettes of each artwork are symbolic of my emotional experiences. Darkness & Light is an up-close, very small facet of the much larger work that is taking place within my community. I am inspired by my life and by others who share my philosophy. Throughout the creation of this body of work, I collaborated with various individuals within my community to create a collective design that viewers might find inspiring. The involvement of community within my work has changed the way I view art education.
