The Art of
Whether it is playing, watching, or reading about it, hockey plays a large role in my everyday life. My work incorporates the aesthetics of the sport into art. There is a lot of visual information available within the sport: the designs of the jerseys, the forms and folds of the jerseys when worn (or not worn), the players on the ice, the fans of the game and the specialized equipment of its various positions. Each of these things could be considered a form of art in itself, from the sculptural form of a goalie’s mask, the colorful elements of a team’s jersey, or the drama that takes place in the game itself, with a full range of emotions that can be experienced throughout.
Influenced by my family and friends (since most of them share my enthusiasm of hockey), I've started to include these people and their relationship with the sport into my work as well. Hockey lends itself to limitless potential for artistic expression. I want the viewer of my artwork to experience the same passion that I have towards the game.
