Quadrataluxe II, 2020
uv inkjet to shaped composite aluminum panel
edition of 3, dimensions variable, overall dimension 44 x 44 inches

Fabrication of this artwork is made possible with an ADAP grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

The following is from my grant application, titled “The Shape of Things to Come”:

With this grant, I will create 4 artworks, printed on rigid substrates as opposed to media of the traditional digital print (paper/canvas). Printing on rigid substrates opens up a new avenue of exploration in my work by allowing my geometric constructs to expand beyond the confines of square and rectangular formats with use of a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Router that can cut the substrate panel to my specifications.

ADAP (Artists With Disabilities Access Program) provides funding that gives individual artists with disabilities—and organizations that serve them—the resources they need to further their artistic development. ADAP awards help artists with disabilities advance their artistic practices, making Ohio a more accessible and inclusive place to build an artistic career.

Octo Astra I, 2020
uv cured inkjet on composite aluminum panel
Multi-Layered: Base dark gray panel with printed grid and raised cut-out geometric panel
48″x48″, edition of 3

Islamic Art is an important influence. A geometric construct on composite aluminum is raised on top of a gray base layer with a printed grid. The construct consists of Octagonal units of 8 squares surrounding an octagon. I call them “Octoquads”. Interstitial areas between these form 8 pointed stars.
