Dusk from Harbor Steps

"This piece depicts a summer sunset at a downtown Seattle landmark. While painting I was deliberately trying to describe the confusion and cacophony of both aphasia and my sensory processing disorder.

The lights strike a jarring cord against the dark, blending together at times and somewhat overwhelming. Streaks of paint cascade down the canvas, recreating vertigo. Figures are sketched in or barely drawn as the brain tries and fails to track them.The steps themselves are barely discernible and flattened, describing my issues with depth perception. While tables and chairs are reduced to symbols the brain intuits rather than actively sees.The paint streaks and spatters add a visual texture of "static" to the piece symbolic of the drowning sensation created by street noise, multiple voices and music that is city life. Creating a scene that is both discordant and beautiful at once."
