Artist’s Statement:

My work is an investigation of biomorphic and symbolic forms in a spatial atmosphere of color and light. These are optically oriented abstractions in which color and the arrangement of forms in space become the vehicle for illusion. I am pursuing the formal elements of color relationships as well as the emotional response that color can elicit. I intend to provoke a physical sensation in the viewer, which includes feelings of warmth and coolness, a sense of closeness, distance and motion.
