Exploration plays an important role in my creative process. I infuse my paintings with color theory, color tonality, art history and geometry. They are digitally inspired, extensively investigated and hand crafted. Each composition is painstakingly edited, expanded and arranged until I discover an order that is curious, beautiful and dynamic, while maintaining lightheartedness. I fill the surface with repetitious hard edge shapes, controlled brushstrokes and a network of subtle shifting colors.
I do not offer a message; rather I project fictional spaces with uncomplicated imagery onto the two dimensional canvas plane using a variety of tools and techniques. Discovering a painting’s spatial and internal individuality becomes my quest. I believe the combined influences that merge and drift at varying depths reveal a buried reality within the work. Each painting offers to soothe and each invites a quiet contemplation of their colorful and vibrant surface.
