At present, painting for me is like returning home. I painted for many years, then for approximately ten years my practice became more conceptual—creating collections of contemporary material culture. I returned to painting in 2006 with a renewed and revitalized interest, fueled by conceptualism and informed by postmodern attitudes.
Geometry as an armature for abstract form-making is useful in its traditional role of composition building, and for messing with perception, but for me now it is more valuable for the varied and charged references it is capable of conjuring.
