Statement: “My paintings exist in a space between order and nonsense. I work in a call-and-response manner in which each mark made calls for a counteraction to bring the composition into balance. Layer by layer, I paint repetitive geometric patterns by hand, mixing mathematical precision with human warmth. The result is a mishmash of structured patterns mixed with irregularities, improvised marks and riotous colors. For me, this practice is a way of creating my own sense of order amidst absurdity.”
