This work currently hinges upon a precarious balance on the fulcrum of time. Place may be unclear or transparent. Forms may be recognizable or abstract. I take random acts strewn throughout my life and attempt to weave them into an abstract tapestry of beauty.  I find structures of meaning for the seemingly chaotic—an aesthetic dance derived from the ugly or uneventful.
Life can seem like scattered, random acts strewn in an arbitrary manner, constrained only by days, weeks and years.  I constantly attempt to find meaning and see patterns of beauty in overlapping, entangling events and the endless parade of images.
The formal properties of this body of work attempt to parallel symbolic meanings through the expression of formal elements. Opaque shapes push against the constraints of dark lines in opposition with the background’s transparency.
Stepping back from the surface of my life’s canvas, I often find order, beauty and harmony in the chaotic messiness of living.  The ebb and flow of countless events fill our daily lives, becoming part of a larger aesthetic where beauty can be revealed and potential meaning embraced.
