ARTIST STATEMENT

I strive for compositions that are active, dynamically balanced. Though I begin with geometric shapes and an underlying structure whose hallmarks are symmetry and stability, I work intuitively with contrasts of color, shape and size to develop varying degrees of asymmetry and visual tension. I want networks of color and form relations to appear and subside in the visual field, and the viewer’s eye to constantly move and discover.
