Works in Motion The primary focus of my work for the past five years has been centered around understanding the phenomena of perceived motion on the static picture plane. On an abstract level, my paintings are designed to work within the physiological state. Not unlike op art works, this is meant to cast the broadest net as it allows anyone to feel it on a primitive level. In this way it is meant as a very social art form. On a secondary level, some paintings I have done include more representational figures. This is done as an open form of storytelling as the physiological sensation of the activity being represented is conveyed in the figures. There are a number of movements that have been of valuable influence to me in this search. Among them, particular works in the op art, futurist, impressionist and fauvist movements have offered a great deal of confirmation to my own studies.
