ARTIST STATEMENT:

My interest in painting is rooted in a systematic approach coupled with a fascination of color that functions as both an organizing principle and experiential element. As an undergraduate at Bennington College I studied art and math, and in the process I became fixated on tropes of geometric abstraction and the elegance of line and color. The imagery I use draws upon arithmetic, set theory, and abstract reasoning. Characterized by a vibrant-hued form multiplied and shuffled slightly, my recent work is an investigation of the paradoxical nature of the grid as both logical and mysterious.
