Artist Statement

My artwork is motivated by golden light, separated into a myriad of colors. My paintings are a harmony between prismatic, bright, contemporary colors, and geometric abstraction. Patterns, shapes and color are juxtaposed and embodied with the natural and the synthetic, in actual forms such as sculptures or as 2 and 3-Dimensional paintings.

My philosophy involves creating works that express growth, meditation, contemplation, luminescence, transformation, and repetition amongst infinite variety. When I create, I think of the beautiful things of the world of which I am so attracted, and desire to consume. The constant pull of consumerism is satiated by the incessant drive of creation and growth. I create instead of consume. These paintings strive to create a new awareness and hope for our environment.

  3. My paintings are a byproduct of invention and exploration, and form themselves on Canvas out of the ideas and information I have gathered from life: the experiences of people I meet, nature I see, and the colors which I am so attracted to.

    this could be the best..”my art is about” i have ever heard!

  4. hi,

    this is fantastic stuff you are doing…congrats…I’m just getting started myself…planning on taking classes soon…want to work full time in the art field…gallery, teaching and doing i guess…I work full time for the government but that will change as i really want to work in the art world and it doesn’t leave nearly enough time to think and paint…

    I’m trying to figure out what I want to say with my art…hoping studies will help me with that…for now i experiment with ideas as i find inspiration from others work.

    whereabouts are you located? I’m in Victoria BC.


  5. Dominique,

    I am so happy that I “stumbled” upon your work! It is exciting and so beautiful!

    What kind of wax do you use in your work? I would like to experiment with it in my acrylic paintings. Thanks.

  6. Dominique, I’ve never seen your older paintings and sculptures-they are fabulous! It is fun to see how you’ve progressed since then. You’re a true talent and I’m happy to have you as my studio buddy:)

  7. Dom! 😉 Your work is beautiful, as always. I’ve been fortunate to see many of your paintings at Pepperdine, and am thankful to get a glimpse into your installations! I find it inspiring that your style is so diverse, always evolving; it mimics life itself! I like that you’ve found pockets of beauty around the world and created something lovely out of your collection to share with us. Even though your art speaks for itself, how I’d love to pick your brain to see the thoughts behind your creations! There’s so much depth to everything you make. Thanks for staying true to your passion…it really is a gift to both the eyes and spirit.
