Color and Light
I always to look for order and simplicity amidst the challenges and complexities of daily life. Color and Light, represents my latest challenge: to find new vision in the architectural spaces I explore. I look across and up, searching for simplicity and order of line, color and light. The light is my primary source of inspiration and destination. I see light as an opportunity to see forward and beyond the present. I often choose soft neutral palates with the addition of bold, surprising color. I create unique images with the precision of straight lines and a few angles. I look for reflection to define texture and depth and unite the light and color.
The earliest pieces in this series were taken in museums where I use elements of soaring walls, narrow corridors, and natural light sources to create my abstract compositions. As my work on this series has continued, I have found new architectural spaces, both grand and ordinary, to explore. In any space, my goal is to realize balance and order within the elements of of light, color, line, and reflections of walls and windows to create something new. My vision is to continue this work with the addition of other elements such as curves, and material textures to create unexpected perspectives.
