ARTIST STATEMENT

While my portfolio demonstrates experimentation with style and subject matter, the majority of my paintings explore the following elements:

1.The Mark
2.The Grid (based on the Fibonacci sequence)
3.Counterpoint between the Mark and the Grid

To me, a brush or charcoal mark consists of three unique parts: initial contact with the canvas, an expressive continuation of the stroke along the canvas surface, and the gesture used to complete it. While each mark has its own identity, taken together these marks create harmonies that play off each other like the voices in a Bach fugue or other counterpoint composition.
  
My marks are also generated in response to the structure of grids derived from the Fibonacci sequence. 

I began making grid paintings to explore the potential for interaction between organic, intuitive marks and natures own mathematical structures. My goal is to create a series of environments that embody the interplay between mathematical structure and the freedom of personal, natural expression.
