This work is an arrangement of vertical proportions that explore building and generating a rhythmic color frequency. The surface can be seen or felt. The optical equilibrium is repeated as a group or unit interacting between elements which move from a static to a dynamic field.
I always listen to music while I paint. Color and materials largely contribute to drive the process in the building and reductive placement of form and textures. The compositions strive to create the illusion of light, density and flow.

The current “Groove” paintings references the rhythmic beats in jazz. Through an intuitive organization of line, form and color, the paintings move forwards and backwards similar to rhythmic patterning and feelings in music. Like that of color systems, music creates a response to the cycle of motion that emerges in aligned concurrent rhythmic patterning.
The paintings find resolution through evolving organically while pushing and influencing spacial elements into a corner to work itself out. The process stops when the optical satisfaction lands a visual surface beat without losing the whole. A painting hanging off the obvious or illusive grid.
