“My paintings are inspired by architectural fragments reduced to essential shapes emphasizing ambiguous perspective and hard edged forms. Color is an important element as I explore the way it both defines and confuses space as the colors interact. Abstraction versus representation creates additional tension between pictorial and actual space.”
