Portfolio > Paintings 2020 - present Color/Shape/Transparent

I describe my paintings, drawings, and drawing installations as hardedge color fields with a digital sensibility that explores the language of geometric abstraction. Influenced by Op Art, I have worked with abstract shapes and forms to confront the world around me.

I used stencils and wallpaper to develop my early compositions. Now, compositions originate from digital design process, I layer found patterns over one another in order to transform unique imagery into complex universal symbolism. My use of color is aggressive, frenzied and political, while the groovy, ridged patterns challenge our aesthetic prejudices. Optical transparency and mathematical geometry demand focus—yet require distraction at the same time. My work is a balance of harmony and chaos. A mirror of our times, it shows us who we are.
