My work continues to reflect the creation of balance and harmony, however conversely they can be used to aggressively disturb and interrupt a sense of traditionally oriented order. Spatial and perceptual ambiguities and tensions have become my subject. I see these potentials of structural limitations, and use of more intuitive color mixed with chance and deliberation, as a metaphor for general conflict between order and chaos. They are a continuation and expansion of ideas from my previous grid paintings.
