Artists Statement

 

My current work represents an ongoing study of patterns, lines and shapes concealed or overlooked within the distractions of daily life. Patterns emerge from circumstances, social environments, or from a singular aspect of life. The color is essential in manifesting emotion of the singular within the whole and integral to the balance of the whole as one. With the progression of life, its conditions and emerging technologies, conventional social patterns, physical shapes, and colors evolve and transform themselves. From social to virtual, psychological and physical, simplicity lies within the layers of complexity. In the physical creative process, I integrate a collaboration between my own photography, graphic design, and drawings, which generate the underlying foundation for each painting.
