My background is in drawing and painting, but I think sculpturally. I work with unconventional perspective to expand the perception of space beyond the tangible wall. Paintings are 2-D and mount flat on the wall. Often grouped in diptychs, triptychs, or more, the surrounding space is activated and the entire wall becomes the canvas. Shapes are canvas under wooden dowels, or simply canvas pieces. Pieces seemingly fluctuate between flatness and volume, and appear to float in space. Drawings, also about volume and space, zoom in to focus on subtle intimate details.
So many influences inhabit me: the strong defiantly simple shapes and colors of Ellsworth Kelly, the serenity and monumentality of Constantin Brancusi, the spontaneity and deeply felt intuition of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
I strive to work beyond the boundaries of what is familiar. I work with the tension between geometric and organic, volume and flat. This tension, like life, is full of contradictions. In this world of contradictions, I strive to find a balance.
