Artist's Statement

Visual experience is the ultimate goal. The painting constantly constructs and deconstructs itself between deep space and the flatness of the picture plane. Operating as self-sufficient color mixing machines, the painting’s construction is comparable to the proof of a mathematical equation, with the capacity to demonstrate infinite color situations. By harnessing the characteristics of electronic light, the viewer is enabled to charter their own experience, navigating color and shapes within the depth of field. The constant absorption of information in the city: textures, images, objects, words, sounds, lights… energize, inspire and reflect themselves through the shapes, patterns, colors, and materiality of my work. On the surface of the canvas, a low-relief topography is the result of the assembling the structure. The painting’s process is embedded in its objectness. The experience is both an optical and tactile phenomenon.
