Paintings for Corners (blue), 2006, fluid acrylic on wood, 48 x 3.75 x .50 inches
My work is a process of creating images conjured from experiences of observation, memory, visuals, words, and music. At present color, pattern, and light have preoccupied me, how placement and relationship affect our perception. Working in a variety of media including painting, drawing, and photography, I use minimal and conceptual approaches, such as pairing, seriality, pattern, repetition, and uniformity to construct my images.
