The intersection of analytical models and intuitive process is at the heart of my work. There is a beautiful tension created in combining these approaches; they invite and honor both intellect and emotion.
The introverted thinker in me is drawn to analytical systems – the parameters of the grid, the Fibonacci sequence, or the mathematical structure that produces rhythm and meter in music. In merging these methods with an instinctual use of color and surface manipulation, my work represents a synthesis that asks the viewer to take their time and locate an interior equilibrium.
While I am embracing minimalist and formalist traditions established over time by many artists, particularly Agnes Martin, my objective is to offer an evolution that embraces optimism and the incorporation of a dynamic color palette. Colors like bright oranges, pinks, blues, rich blacks, and charcoal pigments introduce energy to honored methods of artistic inquiry.
