I identify with the modernist tradition of non-objective artists – especially constructivist, minimalist and color-field painters. Avoiding referential images, I utilize color, form, light and texture to create tension between the painted surface, implied spatial illusion, and the objectness of the painting.
My work is also informed by my relationship with the energies animating the natural world: light, elements, minerals, organic matter and topological modeling. I seek an aesthetic harmony that transcends the conscious mind and resonates with the soul.
“A painting is not a picture of an experience, but is the experience.”
- Mark Rothko
