Artist Statement:

In 2009 I began an experiment using my sculptural geometric space as the basis for imagery I painted with glaze on the surface of platters. Then in 2012, I started my sectional wall works that explore this abstract world in a larger format with a freer major shape. I also include low-relief dimensional elements that enhance and counterpoint the 2 dimensional illusions.

Although the work is abstract in form, my objective is to create an image that gives the viewer a sense that some real dynamic is going on, that things are moving and are part of an event.
