"An expressive index of kinetic, emotional expression"
“Color and movement are the foundations of my technical practice. My process begins with layering color on top of color in quick successive brush strokes to create a sense of movement. This mark making is both spontaneous and practiced and the kinetic brush strokes express a mood, the formal elements of the painting emerge. Although I paint across multiple abstract styles my color palette is the fundamental ground that unites all my work and is unique to me. I prefer not to over-determine the meaning of each piece by trying to communicate this personal story in a literal or semiotic mode. Rather, my work is expressive: each canvas is an index of my kinetic, emotional expression.” — Carrie McIntyre
