Two of my works are being shown in the exhibition TANGENTS – ABSTRACT AND GEOMETRIC ART IN NORTHEAST OHIO at the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve curated by Jenniffer Omaitz. I’m honored that my work QUADRABAR I is featured in the article and that my work is covered in this review by artist, gallerist and writer Christopher Richards on the CAN Journal website. Click here to read the article.
The exhibition runs from November 2 – December 16, 2023. Hope you can visit and see not only my work but the wonderful work of the other artists.
Curator Jenniffer Omaitz will give a curators talk at the AAWR on December 2 at 1:00pm.
Curated by artist Jenniffer Omaitz, she says: “Why is making abstract work still important? And how can the process of being an abstract artist lead to greater manifestations of perception? This exhibition aims to excite a deeper interest in geometric art and abstraction in the area and inspire more artists to open up their studio practice.“
I’m humbled and honored to receive Best of Show Professional Division for my work QUADRAMID V in the exhibition COMPLETELY COLOR: Color and Human Experience as part of the society’s Color Impact 2023 World Conference at Rochester Institute of Technology, June 11 – 15, 2023. Attendees from around the world and from across the spectrum of color professions including Science, Industry, Education and Art & Design gathered for this 5 day conference with keynotes, thought-provoking presentations, hands-on workshops, short courses, field trips, an art exhibition and more.
It wasn’t mandatory but artists in the exhibition were asked to produce a short video statement of which some would be selected to be shown at the conference. I found out that my video was shown as the closeout to the conference and the words in my statement were singled out as part of the decision for my award (see video statement below).
The Inter-Society Color Council advances the knowledge of color as it relates to art, science, industry and design. Each of these fields enriches the others, furthering the general objective of color education.

I’ve doubled my Pyralux pyramid with a structure of back to back pyramids in a composition of primary colors and white. Two square pyramids back to back form the platonic solid, the Octahedron. The vertices on the x, y and z axes are in black. About 30 seconds in, the camera travels inside the structure which was a surprise to me when I first saw it as it was designed from the outside and hadn’t thought about what it would look like from the inside.
