Artist Statement: From the silence of nothingness arises forms that expand and contract outward into essential expressions of geometry’s core visual language of line and shape. Imagined universes arise and dissolve as I explore the tension between fluidity and rigidity. Harmony can be achieved at a point between becoming and being, and in that moment of distillation of form lies equanimity, reflection, and stillness within the infinite realm of the cosmos.
