This new series of paintings is about exploring what thoughts might look like and how we as humans feel connected to one another. Expanding on the quintessential text filled thought bubble from a comic book, I wanted to turn it into a more dynamic expression made with color and shapes. I have combined these colors and shapes with lines and axis points to express connections between people. These lines most resemble power lines crossing open spaces and extend off the canvas. The lines create a feeling that there is something they are connected to that lies outside the confines of the painting. In these works I have combined these structures and made the human figure secondary to the endless abstract possibilities of what thoughts and connections might look like.
