The perspectival mappings of space visualized in these gouache studies follow the logic of spatial transformations applicable to affine geometry. Pigments placed in delineated spaces carved out by linear maps erupt into fields of color vectoring in an ungrounded space of a painting. Using new geometries and perspectival arrangements, the paintings disrupt habits of vision by joining movements not usually connected in a painting’s traditional visual field.

The gouaches seen below laid the groundwork for a variety of painting and object studies found on this website. Rather than relying on mimetic impressions and a description of objects, these experiments affirm the potential of imaginative experimentation for the sake of the imagination. They allow us to sense connective or synthesizing processes specific to our perception of the material and physical properties of a painting or object, offering a window into virtual potentials from which to consider the unfolding of a visible world.
