My paintings use unifying geometric structures to establish a cultural dialectic. The tessellations operate as an aesthetic grid that allows me contextualize my sense of space and time. My painting process abstracts my memories, experiences, philosophies, and occasionally other works of art to present various interpretations of the human experience without attachment to representation. My goal is to achieve the same sense of peace that is at the center of many belief structures. By synthesizing diverse ideas, my work ideally shows the viewer that opposites are not always in conflict and that we are all connected.
