“Perception is used as another medium in these works and just as important as color, form, and material. There is a moment of surprise when standing in front of the paintings and understanding the juxtaposition of what the eye sees and the mind knows.”

“In the new work the line is activated when in the color field, and becomes passive outside of it. The paintings explore the universal understanding of the line and our collective ability to extract information and emotion from it.”
