I’m a painter working at a medium to large scale. I work in acrylics on canvas and wood. I’m interested in architecture, circuits, electronics, systems, nature, mathematics, music, iconography and mythology. I use color, rectilinear geometry and the fractal geometry of nature to play with these elements as one who composes music. It is a dance that is always in motion but must be balanced and contained. My geometry is always hard edged. My color employs intense color combinations, traditional and non-traditional harmonies, stripes, and gradations. Through color I can express heat, electricity, movement, as well as stillness and quietude. Through shape the paintings speak of service and dependency. One generator feeds another or one is leeching off of the other, both in interplay, both dependent on each other. By using both man-made Euclidian rectangles and the fractured geometry of the natural world, I pit these two opposing worlds against each other. They are forced to exist together on the same plane. It is man and the machine, the computer and the natural world. They belong together yet are in battle for supremacy."
