As a child :

 

As a child, magicians and magic acts fascinated me.

 

There was something about the illusions they created that captured my imagination. I want that same vivid sense of illusion to be central in my artwork.

 

Today, all of my artwork creates the illusion of three-dimensionality and movement. I achieve these effects by juxtaposing hard-edged color patterns that disrupt the normal process of vision. Some shapes of color may seem to advance and then recede and others appear to pulsae in waves. It is a passion of painstaking, semi-scientific approach to painting and mixed media constructions based on the manipulation of optical devices, and which depend on subtle color gradations, systematic chromatic harmonic lines and shapes.

 

I hope my artwork will stimulate and provoke a positive emotional reponse in the viewer's mind just like the magicians did when I was a child.

 

 

 

 

   “DOWEL HEXAGON”

 

Akin to the unfolding patterns of a kaleidoscope, “Dowel Hexagon” suggests a feeling of height and spaciousness. Like a Mayan ruin photographed from above, the work is a masterful arrangement of line, color and shape inviting touch and inspiring wonderment.



      “LINEAR WEAVING I”

A sense of balance is achieved by the threading of green horizontal lines made up of wooden dowels between columns of red, purple and blue dowels. The design created by negative space above and below the columns adds to the dimensionality and perspective of the piece, as some columns appear closer and others farther away.
