Artist Statement Submitted 2014

I started the Crystal Series in the summer of 2008. It is the visual exploration of the structural and expressive possibilities of light, sight, and the prismatic effect of color. Looking through a form and how it changes as light goes in and out of the shape, multiplies the layers of reality. Crystal can distort images seen through it or reflect images outward. A cross between Impressionism and Op Art, I am showing you how to see light through the magical stimulus of color and movement. To me, perception IS the sensory absorption into life. In my more recent works, I have expanded design possibilities by the repetition of crystal segments. This deconstructs the object so focus is placed on the visual aspects instead of function. I am reconciling the disparate styles of representation and abstraction in a mutual aesthetic coexistence. I have created thirty eight works in this series.
