"Invariable" sets out to undermine the classical Greek spiral with an abstractionist's determined lust for chaos, but form always triumphs.

This work is unframed, and comes rolled in a tube--time is needed for it to unroll properly prior to framing. The high-quality watercolour paper is suitable for float framing, with four deckle edges and a slightly off-white hue.

The grind and excitement of near-constant movement has given me a stormy and tense relationship to space, and to movement within that space. From walled-off Berlin, foggy Vienna, quaint Alpine villages, and myriad boxy American cities--each environment adding something subtle to my creations. I often pose the philosophical question--why would a thing need to represent another thing, if its own beauty in form should be recognized? I crave tension--seeking truth through examination of angles, trial--error, and the narrative that develops visually through the "indelibility" of contact between pen and paper.
