Geometric Abstraction Artist

Artists Statement

For the past 18 years I’ve been creating non-objective abstract artworks to explore transcendentalism. My images have a clean minimal aesthetic which depict hard edged geometric configurations imbued with vivid colours. The inherent objectless architectonic harmony of my pictures was devised as a solution to the burdens of modernity (being restlessness and relentless distraction.) These works aim to both puzzle and engage the eye of the viewer while minimizing distraction. My hope is that the observer becomes entranced, leaving one’s heart agape, consequently his/her attention can gracefully settle into experiencing the ineffable witness state. As the serene equanimity of observance subsides, the beholder emerges with a sensation of renewal. Often the witness also retains a lingering notion and/or familiar feelings from which a narrative may be gleaned. This whole process may happen in an instant, or may be prolonged, but it is generally of a pleasing nature.
