I am inspired by bold and bright colors as they appear in nature or in man-made objects such as textiles or architectural details. Colors can apparently change in hue depending on the value of the adjacent color, and they can appear to recede or advance in space. This visual effect illustrates the fascinating interplay set up between “physical fact and mental effect”. My work stimulates the visual imagination by appealing simultaneously to our sense of objective proportions and to our ability to enter contemplatively into the illusion of depth and motion induced by deceptively simple means.
