You are a single dot in the human race.
Each of your thoughts are a single dot in a mind full of woes and facts.
Our planet is a single dot in the universe.
The cell that we are made from is a single dot.
When you look at these dots in singularity they can seem void of meaning or unimportant, but when you step back and see how all those same dots interact you can see the bigger picture (puns).
My art is focused on Pointillism and the use of thousands of dots to create a single image. Through the layering of four key values ( Cyan Magenta Yellow and Black), I am able to achieve a full spectrum of colors. This process is very similar to the print-making, and/or, printing method.
I create these pieces as a means to alleviate, and process, chronic anxiety and mild depression. The repetition of the pen hitting the paper and the slow process creates a meditative state in which I am able to process my woes and work through them in a healthy, mindful manner.
Art heals in mysterious ways.
