Statement

My work has no main shape or form except perhaps that of the grid, no one component is more important than the other.  How the viewer perceives the work depends on his or her interests and circumstances at the time as well as his life experiences.  If two viewers have vastly different cultural and personal experiences, their reading can be greatly different.


The systematic structure of the grid gives me the freedom to create complexities of rhythm and pattern.  It creates a space to lose yourself.
