I am interested in creating forms that are not made by precise measuring. Rather, with an exactness that is produced intuitively during the process of making. Through painting, I gather idiosyncratic observations from my daily habits and studio, where patterns, objects, and hues become internalized forms to manipulate and arrange. With my interest in the grid and wanting to create disruption in its uniformity, I introduced curvilinear forms as a way to create contrast. Increasingly, this led to how many of these shapes and colors are a reflection of my curiosity in depicting and creating speed, weight, and gravity to abstract geometric forms. Color is used as material and light,.where its physical substance dictates the form it encounters. Ultimately, my work is a reflection of my curiosities in formal experimentation and observations of living in a material landscape.
