Artist's Statement:

Color and light and how they interact are central to my work. Color is painted on pieces of wood attached to a high-contrast geometric background. Light penetrates between them, reflecting colors from one to another and on the background. These colors seem to mix in the air and create an impression of more. As light sources change angle or intensity, and as the viewer moves around the work, new colors are perceived even though they aren't really there. The interaction between color and light has produced an illusion. This relationship between color and light, in part, defines my work.

Viewers should interact physically with my work. You need to walk around and view it from different perspectives. Up close you can see the detailed and intricate methods of construction. From further back, you can appreciate the total effect.
