I am interested in the duality of math and design: through repetition, a line made of color becomes a rhythmic pattern.

Forever V (Forever Series), 20" x 20", Acrylic Paint On Canvas

I contemplate every color, mark, and placement of the line to formulate what I call rhythmic velocities: relationships of color and motion that give life to the composition, creating a heartbeat. I am interested in the duality of math and design: through repetition, a line made of color becomes a rhythmic pattern. This concept is found when composing music, organic landscapes, and architectural structures. By referencing these sources, my abstractions transcend their formal components, reaching beyond a minimalist canon. 

My work is composed of hard edges and thin lines set against an abstract field or a pictorial space. Each color has a quickness that is relative to the colors surrounding it; this gives my paintings visual movement and dislocates the viewer. Through linear and geometric forms, my paintings explore design and mathematical concepts found broadly throughout culture. They are improvised from a wide range of sources such as my conversations with scholars in various fields of music, architecture, cryptology and engineering, my life experiences, and travels.
