Light defines how we perceive ourselves and objects in space.
Geometry and spatial relationships are a part of our built environment and daily life.


"As you stand and stare, fixing your hair, posing for a photo- You unwittingly become part of this work. Lying dormant waiting for you to fall into its gaze, the mirror captures the environment and translates it into art itself. As you see your reflection within the geometric Polyhedrons, your role as a spectator changes into the subject, relating your own human scale to the solid shapes formed in the projected space." 

I consider my works constructions that parallel the physics of light and its’ Chroma through geometric form and the tensions of our own movement through space. Influenced by architecture, futurist & expressionist dynamics; as well as the sleek lines of modernist design, I investigate purist forms, hue and value creating immersive environments. 
Inspired by the PRISM series, POLYHEDRON transforms the paintings from static, self-contained objects, to open and playful mazes for immersive visual experience embedding human scale and all perceptive senses.
