Portraits

Statement

I’m drawn to Geometric Abstraction, Color Field, Hard Edge, Op Art, and De Stijl using them as a means to convey the inner portraits of subjects. Bridget Riley, Frank Stella, Rothko, Mondrian, Ellsworth Kelly, Carlos Cruz-­Diez, Jesús Rafael Soto, and Joaquín Torres-García are all important as influences.

My work represents subjects, situations, and emotions in a reductive visual language. The indelible impressions of our experiences shape what we are inside: our contradictions, hopes, addictions, ego, love, self awareness, doubts — all part of a complex composition that exudes a type of wavelength, vibe, or presence that is projected outward. This work looks to capture sensory observation, beyond the mere visual, through geometric constructs, interpretive motifs, and color harmonies. Each composition is drawn from the immaterial and intangible by way of what we can’t see, but feel, with the intent of being equatable as to who, or what, they are.
