ARTIST STATEMENT

A simplifying approach to art-making is the driving force behind my work. The primary intention is to utilize the basic elements of visual language such as dot (point), line, surface (plane), color and light to create maximum visual impact. My work deals with the elements of repetition, geometric and reductive abstraction. It is inspired by nature, time, space, color, sound, movement, and composition. The reductive aesthetic in my work is an overlapping of decidedly contrary visual elements; a play of many dualities. Concepts of time, space, concentration, and the meditative energies of motion are expressed in this work. 

I use a combination of ultra violet light-resistant industrial epoxy resin, graphite, and acrylic paint on archival tempered wood or acrylic panels. The color usage is one of the important elements in my work for it suggests certain meaning and involves emotions. Graphite lines are drawn using varying weights and grades. Resin droplets are placed one at a time on the final surface. I improvise as I go along. The placement of these two elements continues until an acceptable “visual plane” emerges. In the course of this process, I feel what I imagine composing music must be like. Droplets serving as notes as they come to rest on the surface. 

I am fascinated with the interplay of line, dot and light where the relationship of harmony and balance play a significant role. The interplay of the lines, layers of resin, and resin droplets create a shallow 3-D effect. The drops functioning to both distort and magnify the lines. Lighting plays an important role in the presentation of my work for it maximizes the viewing experience. When I move from one side to another of the artwork, I see a sequence of moving lights and the ever-changing images project into and reflect out of the work. 

Though my working process is a time consuming affair in a very controlled environment, I find a certain meditative quality in it. Working in this state provides a balance of structure and chaos that is fulfilling to me. It demands self-discipline and satisfies a desire to continually improve my workmanship.
