artist statement

I continue to investigate:
painting as a tension between color and low relief wall structures,
the strategy of collage,
art making as a process of transformation and redemption (recycling),
game play/problem solving as a gestural approach to geometric pattern,
the translation and transcription of the non-visual into abstract visual patterns,
the relationship between the structure of Modern Geometric Abstract Art and mundane, mass-produced, throw-away objects (boxes),
low-tech Modern furniture design,
etcetera.
