My paintings can be described as wall-based sculptures. There maybe very little or no content in the individual paintings, but together they form expressive and playful shaped paintings. The idea for these assemblages came from the ancient Chinese puzzles called Tangrams. All the paintings shown are made up of seven elements which are repeated in different sizes and configurations. I like to play with the fragmentation of form. In some cases, my works are much like puzzles to me. These abstractions are meant to be as flexible as possible in interpretation. Symbolism and expression can be expressed. I some of these paintings the color is an intense optical experience without expression or symbolism. Abstract art is (or can be) a puzzle. I believe there is no specific reading for my art, interpretation must be done by the viewer.
