Who doesn’t love squares, circles, grids and polymorphous shapes of all kinds? Making arrangements of non-literal image fragments is something that absorbs us from childhood on. The history of abstract art is founded on this basic human temptation. My original inspiration for these prints comes from applying geometry to real world situations (carpentry) and my years creating patterns for textiles. Making at least one geometric composition during any of my printing sessions is a given if not a necessity. My compositions stress relationships of color, scale, texture and overlapping motifs. As I ‘build’ these prints I like to imagine my role is to engage the viewer in a visually compelling arrangement of the ineffable.
