My goal is to expand perceptual awareness. 

I keep the sculptural mass to a bare minimum using form as a major component. I use the trapezoid to challenge my process utilizing form, color and light. Color and luminosity portray energy that emanates from the reflective painted aluminum surface.

My work uses many paradoxes. For example, I make the outside form curved and reflective, while the attached form is geometric and matte. Or, one can see the surface and the depth simultaneously.  I cut organic forms in aluminum that look manufactured.  I endorse the flatness of minimal painting; but I deploy the luminosity  of color to defy flatness. 

My work is influenced by Taoism. In Taoism, opposites are oneness. These paradoxes help change our perceptions of how we see space and form. My intent is to use visual elements, drawing me and others toward a new perceptual sensibility.
