From the Functional Requirements, below is the Artist Statement:

I received my BFA in Painting at MICA in Baltimore, and attended Skowhegan, the prestigious Artist residency in Maine, before getting into a career leading sales & service teams at Getty Images. Being on the business side led to an MBA in Brand Management & Change Management, and eventually I landed in advertising technology. To round out my knowledge, I completed a Certificate in Digital Marketing at NYU.

 
After moving nto a Product Management role at adMarketplace, an ad tech company, I began applying the Product Management frameworks and process structures to the development of my paintings. I also started thinking about putting together an exhibition, which eventually became “SpaceTime”.

 

Here, I see myself as the Brand, the paintings (and Giclee prints) as the Products, the Gallery Exhibition was the Product Launch, and the Etsy storefront is my iniital Sales Channel. As I'm working through the Deployment and Marketing, I'm running my products end to end.

Painting Narrative: This painting is about solitary versus a shared experience.

"Venus with Dog"

This painting will also be available as a Giclee Print after it's gallery debut as part of the “SpaceTime” Series Exhibition in Manhattan in Feb 2017.


Painting Narrative: This painting is about the idea of a “Venus”, an object of unobtainable beauty. In this case, the Venus could be the modern, brightly colored architecture, the statue of a woman across the river, the person viewing the painting, or it could simply be the landscape itself. The Dog is a younger, more idealized version of my 12 year old corgi, Tater.

  • Chromatic perspective

  • Atmospheric perspective

  • Linear perspective

  • Multiple Spatial Planes


Color: Primary pigments include: lapis lazuli, cobalt green (pale, medium, dark), cerulean blue, naples yellow genuine, permanent rose and raw sienna


Influences The shape of the yellow architecture and landscape is inspired by the “Sleeping Venus” by Venetian Renaissance painter, Giorgione.
