"I create excerpts from contemporary culture and use line, form, color and contrast to blur the boundaries between realism and abstraction. I am motivated by contemporary culture and very interested in modes of communication, and how we absorb such an amazing amount of visual stimuli on a daily basis. My art reflects how this information hits our retinas, how images can be reduced and combined, and different ways in which information is translated, re-assembled and ultimately interpreted by thought. In this series,"Code Defied", I am distilling scenes from photo references- most of which I have taken, into painted lines of color and areas of tone. This reduction serves to slice reality into bands of light and shadow that build up into volumes and captivating compositions."
