A bold palette, balanced structure and uncluttered compositions are core values in my abstract work. Color can be powerful when it defines, enhances, and unites to create and occupy space. In Double_Space my non-objective works consist of two different mediums: mixed media prints and carved, painted wall objects.  Both originate from printmaking and celebrate the uplifting nature that color and shape can bring to our lives. They focus on geometric forms and vibrant colors with a strong connection to architecture.  My art reflects my minimal sensibility and embraces my gravitation towards order.  These aesthetics provide a sense of harmony to counteract and reduce the uncertainty and noise in our world today.

 

My works on paper and wood offer the observer a chance to pause and immerse themselves into abstract other-worlds. The process manifests with one hue, which then leads to a dance between color relationships and variations in shape, line and composition.  Without a preconceived outcome, I work till the print or painting reveals itself.  When this is achieved, I know my art has taken me to a place of truth that speaks to me.
