Artist’s Statement

“I believe there is objective beauty. Something that crosses all cultural and societal biases. An undeniable beauty, that is felt on a vibrational level. Not one based in evolutionary advancement but one based in sheer pleasure. I am looking to define that “it” factor and I believe the definition is hidden in natures math.

Through composition, construct and application I employ the math of our universe. I use the Fibonacci sequence to map out my canvas as well as form the basis of the image itself. I pour my paintings and use minimal brush work to allow gravity to help mold the fractal like details. My hope is that the viewer will feel a resonance with my work. That it propels them to stop and take a closer look and notice the recurring shapes and patterns that occur all around us. Possibly bringing us closer to understanding the what and why behind the beauty.”
