Artist Statement:


I use formal value in my paintings. 

Formalism is a way to understand art in a different way.  Formalism means that a painting is entirely determined by its form - the way it is made - in a purely visual, compositional way.

Formalism means that as an artist, I can choose to emphasize compositional elements, like line, form, color, shape, and texture, rather than realism and content. 
 
As such, my work becomes a blend of realism and abstraction.
