My Caliber Abstraction series (2017- Ongoing), inspired by Robert Rauschenberg's "Erased de Kooning" and Billy al Bengston's "Dento" paintings,  is both a performative and process based series that combines the deep layering of colors on aluminum and a variety of firearms resulting in strikingly beautiful sculptural paintings that bend both light and color. Each aluminum panel is laser cut, anodized and then layered with multiple coats of auto paint before being shot by a variety of weapons in order to create a one of a kind specific abstract motif for each work that would be impossible to recreate. These works are then flattened, sealed, and mounted on either an aluminum bracket or placed in a specific wood frames in order to compliment each piece. These paintings accomplish a goal that has long been important to me in art creation because they are in constant visual movement commanding attention of the viewer based on location or time of day. Below you will find some examples of this series.
