Each painting in this series is an abstraction of an overarching issue — whether political, global, or personal. The word “magna” means “great” in Latin, and for this set of paintings it reflects the greater idea behind each. In another sense, it reflects the way I strive to combine colors and shapes to create a harmonious composition that’s presence compliments our everyday surroundings.
Both actively and innately, I put a positive spin on thoughts as I constantly try to solve problems that arise. I believe that brings to life the best outcomes, so in this series I aimed to envision the most positive outcome and conveyed that through shapes, marks, and colors. This painting is a meditation on the many types of love — motherly, parent-child, marital, lust, etc.
