Gnostic Unit #4
acrylic on canvas
14 x 16 in.

I am an abstract painter. The imagery and concepts of science, mainly chemistry and biochemistry, influence me. Other geometric forms I favor evoke pattern, matrix and environment. Our shared biology has a deep connection to geometric form and I feel this presents both clues and mysteries in the search for who we are.

The images for my acrylic paintings come about through a combination of traditional sketching and computer modeling. I transfer the final design to canvas and hand-finish the paintings using an exacting hard edge taping technique.
