Artist Statement: Creating artwork that is totally non-representative at inception, that remains so upon completion, yet that allows the individual viewer to derive representatative imagery from abstractions, can be very dynamic. This type of work inadvertently addresses the brain's ability to subconciously process repetitive patterns in both the obviously spatial and subtly self-similar domains. The artwork evokes different reactions in different viewers, who notice things that even the artist doesn't notice, so the work evolves everytime someone new views it....

Why is there this incessant need for such highbrow aesthetic and meaning in fine art? All that really matters is that it is pleasing to the eye....
