Statement

When one looks at my work, they see abstract formal paintings with a bright colorful palette. It feels familiar, but how? There is mark-making mimicking computer generated brush strokes along with graphic lines, organic forms, geometric shapes, and pattern. 

    These painted elements are a result of being both a 1990's Nickelodeon cartoon kid eating Lucky Charms and an adult educated in "Fine Art" using the formal language of painting. It may be "High" art, but it comes from the veritable chaos of "Low" places.

    Low art and pop culture come to play in a riot of color and spritely form, while the function of the paintings call into question the intuitive paintings associated with abstraction. I’ve made a game of it for myself by zooming in and out of my digital drawings to create a puzzle-like composition.
