Q. Where did you get the inspiration for this piece?
I used to do Origami all the time as a child. I’d make intricate paper animals when I was bored in class. It felt right to make a series of Origami paintings that combined the many avenues of art that I’ve practiced.
Q. How were you pushing your boundaries as an artist?
I learned a lot about painting by painting this series. My previous work was a lot more loose. The rigid photo-realistic style for this series further developed my skills as an artist.
Q. How does this artwork make you feel?
Origami reminds me of my childhood. I’m attempting to create something beautiful while simultaneously trying to convey the feeling of something impermanent or fragile.
