STATEMENT OF ART:
Design and Art are interchangeably part of my visual esthetic. In many of my compositions I explore repeating elements, juxtapositioning, random element placement, and size reduction/enlargement within a rigid—yet violated—grid structure. Voids and spaces are considered important to the work, and are strategically placed within the composition to provide both visual relief and a sense of the ‘missing’ or the ‘out-of-place.’ Rapid visualization and fluid use of the technical—Illustrator and Photoshop—greatly assist in the creation of multiple alternative layouts…all seeking the magic “ah-ha” moment of visual discovery. During the creative process serendipitous color compositions are actively sought and carefully recorded. Rotated, repeated, and altered shapes build a vibrant, discordant, near-musical sense of place in many of my pieces. This approach has been fruitful as it has yielded exhibitions at regional, national, and international venues.
