My recent work is an excavation of the inheritance of the past which delves into the connectedness and parallels of the present, the real and the abstract creating a visual conversation between words, symbols and shapes. It takes a critical view of positive and negative space while creating tension via rigor in form, straight lines and the right angle. I find an irresistible tension between the rectangle and the square. I aim to break down symmetry while simultaneously aiming for balance through contrast and the dynamic born of different shapes, objects and textures complementing or challenging each other. I use metal, wood and canvas as materials of choice.
