On the surface, grids and geometric shapes are like a blanket that overlays the natural world.
Like a blanket, they can shape to and integrate with their natural surroundings.
This synergy or interaction between the manmade and the natural world is what I paint.
Of course, one could make the case that there really is no distinction between the two, and that nature creates seemingly straight lines (horizons) and geometric shapes (crystals).
So, in the end, I hope that the viewer of my work assimilates the information presented in a non-judgmental way; that there is no hierarchy, only a unified field of seemingly disparate things.
