My goal is to create art that represents order, beauty and emptiness.
To instill the pictures with an intrinsic order, I incorporate geometric structure into the compositions. Compositional elements are sized and positioned to fall on specific alignments, intersections and divisions. I use a transfer method in which I draw every element of a composition on paper, use an X-Acto blade to cut apart these drawings into stencils and then use the stencils to transfer the drawn forms onto the surface of the painting. My goal is to create a distinctive visual language in which natural lifelikeness is contrasted with the imposed structure of design. I want the viewer to enter the illusionistic space of the image, while the picture’s formal organization holds their attention on the surface.”
