Statement:

I'm interested in the formal properties of painting and how through the manipulation of pattern, surface, colour, and light a painting can perform a mapping of reality. My motivation is to work with perception. By examining the principles of Op Art the illusion of depth in space is further confused by overlapping layers of transparent colour applied tone on tone.  Recently, I've been moving away from high contrast colour schemes to a more natural earth tone, which sets me further apart from the bold forms of my predecessors. My process does not involve any masking or cut outs. Instead, I trace the geometrical pattern first with a colour pencil, which is later painted free hand. I enjoy painting freely within the boundaries of the shapes. My focus is to examine the optics of painting on the surface of the canvas.
