In a space that contains elements of our universe ranging from cellular to cosmic, simple
geometric shapes serve as characters or markers.
The paintings begin with a series of subconscious gestural and perhaps chaotic elements.
Geometric lines and shapes engage with the with the organic elements recalling games,
systems of measure or other organizational devices that are used to understand, explore,
invent or entertain. In so doing, the artist attempts to find comfort and sense in this world and
our place within it.
