The structural framing prior to the walls being set in place. In some ways it alters your perception of a structure, as the background lines intersect with the foreground. Solid shapes no longer obstruct the overall design and deeper space is considered within the composition.
In some of the line work I imagine myself navigating the lines into the infinite. With that the metaphysical properties compete with the formalistic premise, even if by simply looking at a group of white lines that intersect. Like how inspired you feel through stargazing at night, when in some weird way you’re kinda looking at white dots on a large blackened canvas. Well, maybe not exactly like that, but you know what I mean. Still, the subliminality of space will always keep you from merely seeing only little white dots. In my work, I want to engage in that consideration.
I grew up in Woodland, CA and currently am a member of the Bows and Arrows Art Collective in Sacramento. I also serve on the Board of Directors at Verge Center for the Arts. My influences are Xbox games with atmospheric elements such as the Mass Effect, Fallout, and Elder Scrolls series, and photographs of outer space. But mostly Xbox. I also do karaoke hard.
