My work contains a hybrid of geometric and organic forms created through an intuitive painting process. Balancing opposing forces is an important part of this process. Bold color is set against muted, while pattern and texture play off of smooth color fields. These are variables that I mix and layer in multiple stages until a resonant image is formed. The end result is an accumulation of calculated decisions, reckless experiments, and happy accidents.
I often use geometric forms to reference architecture, with nods to bridges, bricks, walls, and windows. These take on a more psychological than literal meaning. The many layers in each piece speak both to the history of the painting’s creation as well to the hidden parts of ourselves that we conceal and reveal in time.
