Doriz Anderson is a Canadian Abstract painter.
“My paintings are extensions of my feelings. In the beginning, I often struggled to control my emotions. Now though, I let it all go, and art just happens.
“Not everyone understands how I see the world, or my interpretation of art, and that’s fine. When the stars do align and my abstractions wash over and suspend you for that very brief moment– that’s what makes me feel connected.
“I push and pull toward and away from bold and harmonious color and patiently search for those elusive and obscure rhythms jangled amidst rolling waves of twilight indigo and butter cinnamon. When I look at colour, my senses explode and I often hear what Goethe describes as a cacophony of orchestral sound – a union of the senses. We’re all born with synesthesia, but most lose it over time. I am lucky in that sense, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe I don’t really want to know. Some meditations and art incantations are best left a mystery.”
