In these works, I am re-engaging painting’s geometric tradition, positioning myself within a network of influences who explored the “objecthood” of painting, as well as the surface’s potential for formal expression. My paintings acknowledge their structure, with compositional elements informed by the boundaries of the panel’s dimensions. The visual incidences created seek to mimic the construction and deconstruction process of the modern landscape, and to conjure thoughts on cycles of progress and decline.
