Statement

Working with a reductive/abstractionist view, my interest centers within the use of line and mark-making.
Specifically and most importantly an examination of the fundamental idea of simplicity, order, and repetition.

Using a pared down palette, mostly monochromatic, and working in a focused narrow vocabulary,
I am attracted to the physicality of the juxtaposition of contrasting marks and lines, the building of layer upon layer,
the repeating of a singular unit to make reference to sensory perception of space and volume, while at the
same time seeking to invoke a sense of quiet pictorial stillness.
