As an interdisciplinary artist, my work has consistently defined itself at the intersection of art and design. I work in a variety of media both digital/traditional. Underling the physicality of my paintings is an intense interest in new media theory, visual perception, information visualization, and a meaningful examination of color. New ideas are often inspired through an ongoing exchange between virtual and physical mediums.
I am currently studying geometric faceting patterns and the effects of white light as it passes through faceted forms, transforming into rays of prismatic color.
My paintings are filled with layers of encoded information, intricate details, fragments of representation and explosive colors. Forms reference the microscopic and architectural structures, digitally encoded information, scientific imagery, crystals-gemstones, celestial bodies and textiles.
