Artist Statement

The works I create are rooted in Formalism, infused with Minimalist Art practice. Without strict adherence to these practices and instead of removing the artist’s “hand” from execution of the works, I prefer to build the works using intuition and painterly surface techniques- incorporating “traditional” art materials rather than the industrial materials of the originators of this form. In another contrast, I also reference both the man-made and natural worlds within the work in order to “ground” the work and add something beyond the self-referential didacticism while still taking into consideration the interesting particulars of Minimalism during execution. Beauty and elegance in form remain the foremost concern within the work.
