Ready to Hang

"Noel (The Chief)" is the companion piece to "Liam (Our Kid)". The discs are hand cut which give it a rough texture. The cool hues are meant to offset the warmer palette of "Liam" which reflects the public relationship of the Gallagher brothers .

There are two visual principles to my work: space-ism and geometry. Space-ism painting presents an intermediate dimension between the second and third dimensions. Planes of space are created by using surfaces with different thicknesses or by layering multiple surfaces. The application of one surface onto another creates a 3D effect. Unlike traditional three-dimensional works such as sculptures, the artwork can be viewed from the one-point perspective as in a traditional painting.

The second principle is the deconstruction of subjects into simple, geometric forms.
When laid out in a grid, the circular forms create a negative space that have a push-pull effect, yet retain the cohesiveness necessary to form an image. The closer in proximity the viewer is, the more abstract the piece. The further the distance between the viewer and the piece, the more recognizable the image becomes.

I was born in Salem, MA and raised in the Greater Boston area. My youth was spent in ice rinks, but I managed to discover my passion for making art. In 2001, I earned a BFA in Graphic Design with Honors from Montserrat College of Art. During the following year, I began work on the “space-ism” concept which produced the first piece for the Icon Series. The concept focuses on creating planes of space within two dimensional artwork 
while simplifying the imagery to geometric shapes. In addition, I produce drawings, mixed media pieces, and work as a graphic designer. Since 2003, my wife and I have been stuck in the terrifying traffic of Southern California.
