Architecture is the unfolding or creation of defined space. It is a language I find very natural to use when making my work. It is how I have always understood space, how one form sits in front of another or wraps around it, one affecting the next. No area is neutral as everything affects perception. My work concentrates on the interplay of form, space, movement, color and texture utilizing these conventions as a visual stimulus of pure geometry. The paintings take advantage of their materiality to simultaneously exhibit a concrete stillness and optical speed.
