Artist's Statement

I am an artist studying the underlying structure, geometry and patterns, as projected onto the window of our understanding of the world. I find photo realism to be, like Renaissance perspective, only a language, not more real than other perceptions and projections. Too restrictive! We see differently. I introduce microscopic, structural, close and distant, elements as well as imaginary ones. I like to leave things open enough that the viewer can make their own interpretations, changing and flexible. I'm attempting to break free of rectilinear canvas constrictions, disengage from singular viewpoints, and blur the distinctions of representation and abstraction.
