My fine art is mostly an exploration of high-contrast abstract drawings. Free-form lines, dots, and shapes are combined with ridged grids and geometric patterns to create pieces that are randomly drawn, yet highly structured compositions. Mostly created as black and white ink drawings, select pieces are also translated into screen prints using high contrast fluorescent and vibrant colors.
I was always intrigued by the idea that there is more to be understood than what is initially perceived. This goes for anything; people, places, events, laws of nature, etc. On top of that, there is also the notion that our perception can be restrained, or may differ from person to person. From a distance, my drawings can seem like simple black and white patterns. But upon closer inspection, one can see these ridged patterns are made of many smaller lines and shapes that follow no obvious order. Illusions created by some of these patterns expose the restraints in our own perception. Even when you understand exactly how an illusion is constructed, you cannot physically force your eyes to see beyond the illusion. If our own eyes can play tricks and fool us, what other factors are fooling us beyond our visual perception?
