This work draws upon the history of modern painting but stands alone as a new visual machine. Form and color are utilized to fold and open space within and upon the two-dimensional plane. Flatness and directness of painterly application dominates. As such, representational and illusory devices are not employed. Shape is prescribed through its purpose in layer and composition.
