This gallery contains recent works with a focus on figurative representation as distinguished from color form relationships. These paintings and paper works attempt to define a color space that understands color as form. Several of the paper works are based upon exercises found in Josef Albers' Interaction of Color and are examples of shifts in value and hue. Depending upon which parent color (background) a chip (smaller color) rest on, the human eye will perceive that chip's value or hue differently. While the transparency studies attempt to demonstrate illusion through the use of color, the mood studies describe feeling as a byproduct of optical experience. While drawings may represent recognizable forms, these particular color studies enter a separate realm of visual theory: one that does not rely on recognizable objects, but rather, a space that relishes in color.
