ARTISTíS STATEMENT

THE CURVED LINE IS CENTRAL TO MY ART.

INITIALLY THE CURVES EVOKED AN ABSTRACTED FIGURE. I LIKED EXPLORING ITS COMPACT SHAPE AND EXPRESSING ITS INNER EMOTIONS WITH COLOR, TEXTURE AND SYMBOLIC IMAGERY.

TURNING THE FIGURE ON A HORIZONTAL PLANE EVOKED LANDSCAPES THAT ENABLED ME TO EXPLORE ENVIRONMENTAL SHAPES AND SPACES WITH AN ABSTRACT FOCUS. RECENTLY, A DNA DOUBLE HELIX HAS EMERGED AS MY CURVE.

I PURPOSEFULLY USE LAYERS OF COLOR AND OVERLAPPING SHAPES TO SUGGEST A SENSE OF MYSTERY AND DEPTH.

THE POSSIBILITIES EXPLORING THE CURVE SEEM ENDLESS.

THE FREEDOM IT ENCOURAGES PUTS MY MIND INTO A SPIRAL OF CREATIVITY.
