w/o context

I routinely investigate and document unrecognizable appearances. The resulting images offer no relative size and are seen only by virtue of a shadowless, über-diffused light. They exist in an environment where line is the lone visual indicator, and those lines we do see are rather pragmatic—rendered more to disclose a field/percept tipping point than to inform through expressiveness.


Proportions: Generally speaking, I size canvases to correspond to the Golden Section, but not necessarily the compositions themselves.

Identification: Signing my work along the side floats the image slightly off center allowing for a less static presentation.

Titles: I use an online password generator to identify my works.


Chop: The red, reoccurring stamp-like image in my paintings mimics the chop impressions found on my prints and drawings. Think: avatar.
