My most recent work focuses on lively colors set within geometric designs. The lines serve as a skeleton or map for the hues to vibrate off one another. This painting is inspired by my love of live-performance lighting, the faceting of crystals, and the fluorescent colors of 1980s fashion. It is bold and bright, teeming with visual information. This optically stimulating piece will enliven any room.
