Artist Statement

 

My work is a response to art that beseeches viewers to react emotionally to the world around them. Meant to deny the temptation for reflection of the soul, the colors, paint, lines, vibrations, scale, intervals and texture are an external expression of order. And yet, there is no denial of meaning in these geometric minimalist works. While emotional context is illusive, the vibration of colors is evocative of self-reference in themes of musical rhythm, club life from era past, techno beats and narcissism. Through usage of repetitive vertical/horizontal/diagonal geometrics in liquitex with resin on Russian birch panels, cubes and rhombuses, the viewer is prompted to experience the dance of colors; each specifically chosen to vibrate one against the other so that he or she may feel, see and hear the musical pulse. As each color bounces off the other, the choice of color influences the experience for the viewer. As the viewer participates in this synthesis of senses, the impact of color on humans is brought to focus and yet not meant for interpretation.
