I follow in the tradition of artists/printmakers like Donald Judd, Frank Stella, Brice Marden, and Helen Frankenthaler. While those artists explored flatness, my work explores the next step--creating dimension, movement, and the illusion of space using the universal languages of color and form. I am influenced by Futurism, Modernism, Pop, and graffiti. Digital art enables me to use the same thought processes of traditional printmaking without the toxicity of using traditional materials on a daily basis. I investigate our perception of language, logic, and ambiguity, and how they influence cognition and the process of change.
