Artist Statement

These abstract works focus on repetition, color, and light. Repetition occurs in both the process of creating, and in its presentation. Colors are created both through systematic layering as well as by chance and happenstance. In painting, the idea of colors occurring rather than being mixed themselves happens through layering, pointillism, and transparency. Changing light on a piece activates the layered colors and can change its entire dimension.

Color creates harmony that unifies. The shapes are generally simple- dots, circles, lines- or very natural and loose, such as blobs and masses. These shapes are meant to help communicate and allow the color to interfere in different ways while being unencumbered by representation or a focus on the shape itself. The strong focus on repetition allows for a meditative process of creating, with occasional bursts of chaos. The repetition of lines and dots and blobs is meant to allow the viewer to become lost in each piece. They provide an escape from a squared-off, linear world.
