Bio

Artist Statement:

My works are experiments in using forms and light refraction to create environments. Influenced by the architecture and the sleek lines of modernist design, I investigate spatial arrangements using an elemental and minimalist sensibility. I especially like repeated elements and optical complexities in creating escapist environments.  Light & space movement, elements of color and stimulus of light and motion are major components in my work. That is the true essence of beauty in my mind.

I consider my works "constructions" that layer and arrange light and color thru forms. They are intuitively driven and seek simplicity in composition that invites the viewer to move into a place of speculation.

In my Prism series, I aim to apply the same ‘simultaneist’ rhythms of abstraction to diffuse light into color forms, and the effects of spatial projection. It is an equation between color, light, eye, brain, and the soul.  Originally, I created a series of photographs that became paintings-  then in turn transformed into 3d investigations, Polyhedrons- moving out of the containment of painting and into space, sculpture and fianlly complete immersive installations.

I am interested in the interaction between man and environment, inspired by mathematics, natural fractal relationships between manmade vs naturemade, and perception, Op Art , deconstruction and virtual environments, using technology to achieve the impossible. Although I have been influenced by the light and space movement prevalent in Southern California, my deeper inspirations are rooted in the Bauhaus, pioneers of modernism in art and architecture of Le Corbusier, Paintings of Robert Delaunay, and the Futurists movement blending movement into art and inspiring phtographers Jules Etienne Marey, Eduard Muybridge- giving way to Film, Futurists Giacomo Bala, Umberto Bocchioni, and many othersin the 60's such as Joseph Albers and Frank Stella, Victor Vasarley.
