I construct a world of human relationships expressed in cubic imagery. Of Cubic Proportions is a body of related works that explores geometric and mathematical ratios. Through proportional harmonics I generate interactions within the paintings that establish the scale and placement of the subject. I use one-point perspective, squaring of planes, and color juxtapositions to create the illusion of depth in some areas and spatial ambiguity in others. My chromatic relationships make use of complementary and analogous colors while eliminating black. By combining formal elements I create images that personify and allude to the human condition.
