artist statement

  

                                                    Counterpoint: 

The mediation of two or more lines into a meaningful and pleasing whole


Textured abstractions encompassing a broad spectrum of color and materials exhibit the multiplicity and goal-oriented motion of my work. Through the repetitive use of independent abstract forms, I spontaneously fuse disparate elements together in an expressive counterpoint. 


Working in series, and using copper and aluminum as the foundation materials for both my mixed media paintings and sculptural assemblages, a reflective conversation, both literal and emotional, takes place with each piece. Often breaking the boundaries of a rectilinear art practice, I use the inherent motion encompassed in geometric shapes to act as the portal to unexpected dialogue and interpretation. I trust, intuition, chance, and the materials at hand to resolve the use of the perfect geometric shape with imperfect, abstracted elements to create works of truth and harmony.
