Artist Statement

 

My small scale art works are studies in pattern, repetition and organic minimalism.

They are explorations in Balance. They balance my large scale public art installations with intimate, contemplative, personal piece work. They balance the rational with the non-rational, the real and the ideal, order with disruption.

Perhaps connected to my background in Philosophy, inspiration comes from the contemplation/visualization of Platonic ideal forms. My hope is that the pieces fulfill the role that art can play in becoming a gateway for insight into the non-rational side of ourselves and the world in which we find ourselves.
