Artist's Statement

My work is an exploration of tension, gesture, form and space and volume. I create installations using patterns, shapes, and color that I have culled from various sources that speak of a re-negotiated relationship of viewer to object and plane, a kind of stage set for a dance between image, object, environment and participant.
By playing with perspective and manipulating the tension between flat color and form and the implied three dimensional illusion I am able to create a space which is complex yet simple, a space that is defined by our reactions, by the visceral connection to basic principles of the art object: form color, line, space. By using simple geometry I renegotiate the relationship between the perceived and the actual, by shifting our body’s sense of equilibrium and challenging our perceptions of the way we believe things to be.
