Artist's Statement

My artwork is an abstract representation of Kenny Bazydlo's research on Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism. In order to portray the progression of a blood clot and its effects, I created a composition of six canvases, each representing a different stage in the development and movement of a blood clot. The brush strokes represent the bloodstream. The development of a clot and the journey of an embolism from the extremities of the body to the lungs is depicted by the color transition from red to blue.
