I paint mechanical abstractions.

Slowly painted by hand onto canvas or paper, my work is often perceived as computer generated.

In reality, I improvise forms entirely with pencil and paint. Inspired by technology and

engineering plans as well as abstraction, I paint out and add elements as needed. I keep forms

reduced to flat color and black line to direct the focus to the structures created.


Each painting is titled with a sequence of numbers rather than words. This provides a type of

tracking number and obscures any literal interpretations. Painting by hand counterbalances the

futuristic technology and inventions it strives to reflect. When complete, each painting attempts

to combine the enigmatic qualities of the industrial world with that of the abstract.
