The earliest of these peices (the top row) were done while I was still living in Ottawa. This is just a few of the peices from that time, a representative sample.
is primarily concerned with using color and shape to create motion.
I've always had an intense interest in geometry, which shows in
the work, and in optical effects that can be created by shape and
color juxtapositions. Several of the works play with layers of similar
objects, and fine differences in color to create a sense of depth. The idea behind all of them is that there is an infinite plane of objects and that the painting is simply a "slice" of this plane. My interest in Escher's ideas on Perfect Tiling are also obvious.

The next two rows are some of the peices I did after moving to Boulder. The transition was both physical and mental. My work became more complex as I became interested in what happens when two planes intersect.
