Friedrich Nietzsche stated: "Without music life would be a mistake.” For my abstract series, “Unplugged,” I tap into my lifelong fascination with music’s raw emotional power. Music can instantly change my state of mind and hammer away at inner commotion. When I work on my art, the music is on, LOUD, and I embrace the rhythm and the sound vibrations. Creating art without music would be like trying to work in total darkness.
