Artists have used geometric abstraction since ancient times to make sense of the world around them and record their stories. I apply abstraction and geometry as an organizing and fragmenting tool for processing those unsettling characteristics of every day life.

The content of each painting is the sum of organized tensions and its reality lies in the dynamic relation of forms one to another. Tilting of forms represents the notion of an elemental structure whether spiritual or scientific rendered illegible by the disorder of modern life.
I explore discord and loss of equilibrium to overthrow expectations. The canvas detaches itself and acquires an autonomous life, thus the painting becomes real when it looks like it has been done all at once and has no beginning and no end.
