Artist Statement"When I set out to compose a new painting, one key element that draws me in is rhythm. I think people may associate this term more commonly with music or dance movement, but for me it's a thing I'm always seeking visually. In my work, it's what speaks of the liveliness and bustling activity of that which sits before me even in the quietest of compositions. From my vantage point, every design element performs in great orchestration and attends my willingness to seek a desired effect and capture it in paint. What this means in simple terms is that a particular light quality, the light and shadow patterns, the lines, size and shapes of forms all tend to surreptitiously, link, coordinate and favor the composition at hand" ~ Michele del Pilar
