I create minimal compositions based on traditional symbols and sacred geometry. Archetypal images, with their ability to communicate ideas which transcend religion and culture, are the foundation of my studio practice. My paintings and watercolor drawings bridge Eastern and Western thought through the ancient uses of iconic symbolism, symmetry and pattern found in traditional forms such as Byzantine mosaics, Indigenous weavings and Tibetan mandalas. Rooted in the process of accretion, a deliberate layering of transparent shapes and collections of opaque beads and dots of color represents an embodiment of time. Each of my series explores mathematical proportions such as the Golden Mean (which I employ to determine the dimensions of my supports) and Fibonacci sequences, as well as organic elements and the duality of abstract geometry and mythology. My works share a meditative quality evoking stillness, balance and harmony—the very characteristics that geometric forms seek to awaken. While striving for symmetry and precision in all of my work, each piece is rendered subtly asymmetric by my hand, serving as a reminder to the viewer of our collective humanity.
