I was born and raised in the beauty of Taos. There has always been something that feels right when I am looking across the mesa or climbing the hills around this sunny and protected land.
My paintings are the product of an interest in color, chance, and pre-determined limits. Sometimes these rules are expressed as code. Images are generated or constructed through algorithms that rely on a controlled use of randomization. The results of the automated process are edited and become the building blocks of the final composition.
In the case of these paintings, the first limitation is the use of stencils that set up the relationship of size and spacing between circles. Color palette and canvas dimensions are other pre-determined limitations placed on the paintings.
I am intrigued by what happens at the intersection of order and disorder.
