I am interested in surfaces and textures—both physical and optical. My paintings are experiments comprised of shapes, lines, shapes within shapes, color runs, and bleeds. They are like hard-edged paintings, with flats of color composed in geometric arrangements, but they are developed through layers over a period of time, and have softer edges. The effect is akin to that of patinas created by natural processes, with pigments dispersed in the fabric of the support, suggesting a historical and structured narrative.
