My aerial-view paintings represent diverse places and spaces of the contemporary landscape seen from an above ground perspective. The flattened surface planes convey the textures of abstract space enhanced by compositional aesthetics. From the elevated position of high-rise buildings and helicopters, my images of cities and towns, factories and farmlands, power plants, suburban communities and highways are delivered with a distinctive angle on structures frequently taken for granted.
My silk-screens are my paintings close cousins, only in a smaller format and using a different medium. Projecting my interpretation of the same concept and approach, they are executed in a variety of serigraphy methods from digital design to hand drawing that produce multicolored images.
Through the aerial vantage point one discovers a modern perspective and fresh visual vocabulary. The flattened plane reduces details to strong graphic images that are more abstraction than representation.
