GEOMETRIC MINIMALISM: HIGH FIDELITY
THE COLOR OF MUSIC
My work is a response to art which beseeches viewers to react emotionally to the world around them. Meant to deny the temptation for reflection of the soul, the colors, paint, lines, vibrations, scale, intervals and texture are an external expression of order. And yet, there is no denial of meaning in these geometric minimalist works. While emotional context is illusive, the vibration of colors is evocative of self reference in themes of musical rhythm, club life from era past, techno beats and narcissism. Through usage of repetitive vertical/horizontal stripes in oil with alkyd and resin on canvas, linen and Russian birch panels, the viewer is prompted to experience the dance of colors; each specifically chosen to vibrate one against the other so that he or she may feel, see and hear the musical pulse. As each color bounces off the other, the choice of color influences the experience for the viewer. As the viewer participates in this synthesis of senses, the impact of color on humans is brought to focus and yet not meant for interpretation.
