My work explores and interprets fundamental patterns, geometry, and systems of order, which occur naturally, unnaturally, on purpose and by chance. Although nearly everything we experience today is digitized, each seemingly simple convergence of shapes echoes back thousands of years through multiple iterations. They reveal the building blocks of life and civilization as we know it today.
While Minimalism and Cubism have each had a significant influence, I also draw inspiration from lesser-known movements like Pattern and Decoration and Op Art. I address visual phenomena such as the shifting perception of two and three dimensions; illusionary (plastic) space versus real dimensionality. In addition, I seek to honor hand-crafted mark making as distinct from the perfection of machine- or computer-generated designs.
