to think that through process I used the rules of formal order to manipulate
or control the images I created. Now I tend to think that my mission is
more about negotiating with chaos. To me it is a fluid process where decisions
are made based on lessons learned. Every piece I finish raises questions
that can only be answered within the context of another work. This is
fine with me because I have always enjoyed the process.
When I walk into a gallery or museum I tend to first gaze around the room
in an effort to find a work that stands out from the others. Approaching
the work I look for something to linger upon. Allowing the work to lead
me throughout the piece.
With this in mind I try to create works that interest me. If they have
this influence on me then I feel that I have been successful.
I like to find order in my work. I try to establish a movement that leads
the eye. Then I try to create something that will entertain the eye on
its excursion throughout the piece. I do this by establishing clean hard
edges that defines the form and movement and contrasting textures that
interrupts the surface of the image.
