In my work, I seek to engage the viewer (and myself) in a surprising non-tangible amplification of light and color. My process involves experimentation, iteration and intuition. Each piece evolves from a paper maquette to fabricated steel. I am attentive to how the tilting of a plane skews a color, how a shadow or a reflection merges with a painted surface, and how internal color contrasts affect the external contour of each painting. When installed, the paintings protrude from the wall, creating different spatial interpretations. They can appear three-dimensional or flattened, perspective becoming uncertain; the distinction between what is painted and what the eye constructs as elusive.
