Statement: My work concerns the depiction of Architectural space and how we experience the world visually. Our perception of the world is not static, but encompasses multiple viewpoints simultaneously. I explore how architectural space is constructed and observed, using exaggerated perspectives, architectural shapes, flattened planes, aerial views, and the language of maps. Visual experience in the world is not like a photograph, a rectangle which flattens space, but has continually shifting perspectives. In addition to the focal image we perceive peripheral images that are assembled into an experience of a place. Often these images are abstracted into symbols and shapes. The works are created with a personal abstract language that references architecture, landscape and mapping with, grids, squares, lines and paths. Within all of the works a type of narrative emerges. These are painterly constructions that act as metaphors for imagined spaces. These paintings are concerned with what is happening in a space in which the artist maps his own creation These works can be rearranged reoriented and recombined into various constructed landscapes. In reality we process different perspectives concurrently. The various panels combine to convey the multiplicity of images and view points the observer experiences. The color and light in the works comes from the influence of Mexico, where I grew up in a community of artists. Color and architectural shape underpin all of the works. These works recreate the spatial experience of orthographical projection, zooming in and receding and convey how we perceive architectural space.
