ABOUT THIS COLLECTION:

“My work is essentially an exploration of hard-edge abstraction. These engineered constructions are softened by the fabric I use to create them, a perfect combination of male and female energies. Part of my narrative is the medium I choose to work in. Leaning toward minimalism, I find satisfaction in paring down my compositions.

Each composition is a visual haiku with every shape and color playing a part. Nothing is extraneous. The bends and folds of my recent work are reminiscent of origami. The sculptural environment allows space for the unexpected to happen. Ordinary edges and nooks become interesting.”
