Geometric Abstraction: 1998-2006
These paintings begin with a gesture that loops over, onto, into, and through itself to create a "body" of overlapping movement like the curl of a wave. Repeating this gesture across the painting's surface creates overlapping ripple effects that lay out a field of potential permutations. By necessity each painting accumulates many layers through multiple reworking.
I use primary colors to equalize color relations, to allow each color independent, equal visibility, (enabling) more than one thing to happen at the same time in the same space.
