Artist Statement: 
I am interested in the simplicity of a single geometric shape and the complexity that can be created through the combination of many simple structures. This oppositional relationship between simple and complex is at the core of my work. My goal is to create a composition for the viewer that feels both simple, graphic, and flat, while also complex, painterly, and deep. The hybridization of these opposing characteristics creates an experience that is not easily digested at one glance. Layers of discovery are created as the viewer experiences the precise and systematic while also the chaotic and expressionistic.
