Work > Interplay

Architecture is the creation of defined space. I use its language to articulate my interest in constructing scenarios and configurations, as symbolic or metaphoric confined spaces. These are dynamic, sometimes aggressive compositions inspired by a contemporary, urban environment. It is an exploration of our physical and psychological world with the foreground and background often shifting to undermine our perception of what is. Color, pattern and texture are used to lure the viewer while enhancing the chaos of the environment within the specificity of their construction. The work takes advantage of the materiality of the paint to simultaneously exhibit a concrete stillness and optical speed.
