Put simply - which I strive to do to various degrees visually - my works explore
the inner (shown on the black side) and the outer (white side) worlds
simultaneously. The paintings can be seen as contrasting visual
representations of both light and dark at once with the black side
literally an imprint of the white side, creating an echoed composition interacting between the opposite grounds.
Part of the challenge of executing the paintings is
in the striving to make each side work visually in unison. Looked at from side to side, they are both the externalization of inner space and the internalization of outer space.
