My goal is to make original works of art, using never before seen mediums and non-traditional techniques. I am attempting to control the uncontrollable. My work is at the mercy of explosives and fire. Fireworks, as a medium, represent the tension between celebration and trauma. The colors are left behind by the exploding fireworks. My artwork proves that there is beauty in the experimental, beauty in the uncontrollable, and sometimes even beauty in trauma.
