artist brief

The paintings in this series are done on the computer in Photoshop, and are printed with ink jet technology on paper. The earliest manifestations of these are mounted to the edge on aluminum panels hung flush to the wall, and later manifestations are floated under Plexiglass and framed or face mounted with matte Plexiglass and framed. This work is part of an ongoing series of paintings that involve color, subtle value distinctions and geometry to create complex visual fields. I make systematic fields of color shapes that bury any method by growing into visually untraceable patterns. The colors are chosen with an interest in strong yet ephemeral and small resonance’s. Some have subtle chroma shifts which form un-balanced compositions that resist any single focal point or overall unity. The colors in this case were digitally extracted from shadows within photos.
