Artist's Statement

 

I am an artist who lives and works in New York City.

I start by drawing a grid with pencil and ruler. My process involves choosing the watercolor palette, collage materials, other mixed media, and the dance of combining them into a harmonious whole. I improvise as I am creating.  I see beauty in pure geometry which creates order in what I have always felt is an unstable world. I understood more about it from my experience in Architectural School and Practice.

My Modulor Series (2007- 2009) of geometric watercolors followed a decision I made around 2007 to revive architectural drafting and use it in creating my artworks. It is 10 related paintings. They are perhaps reminiscent of the early modernist Orphism Movement, which emphasized color and geometric shape.
