My paintings employ a visual language of colored segments, which are assembled together to describe space.

The paintings begin with a line drawing. The structure of the drawing is built through a regular division of the surface, resulting in a pattern. This pattern, oftentimes familiar, becomes uncommon as color is introduced. Color describes the space that the shapes will form; the color dictates, and the shapes must obey. This process gives each painting its identity.

The paintings are reminiscent of looking through a kaleidoscope that has begun to turn. As the field of vision rotates, the pieces of information slip and slide and form a new pattern. They generate the anticipation of being in a completely patterned state that appears as if caught in the act of transformation.

It is within this state that I explore the conjunction of opposites. The paintings are precise yet imperfect, organic yet geometric, calculated yet acutely felt.
