Artist Statement

Geometric shapes and forms provide the foundation for my paintings; they are assembled, repeated and reconfigured into unexpected pictorial propositions.  The consistent size and format of support create seriality.  Each painting exists autonomously, sustained by their own visual logic and singular personality, while also expanding outward to the other paintings as the recurring motifs allow for different visual rhythms to form across the work.  Although the paintings are rooted in the idiom of early abstraction, an animated quality exists, of separate parts moving, coming together and breaking away.
