This series of works occupies the conceptual space that lies between traditional composition and formal minimalist art.
Partially aligned with traditional or formalist painting, these works present only the formal compositional elements necessary to sustain them as art, namely a rectangular or square frame, a ground, and the balancing of visual forms to furnish the illusion of depth and motion.
Partially aligned with the modernist schools of minimalism and conceptual art, the series rejects pictorial realism and representation or the reference to objects outside itself. The series also rejects the need to present spontaneity or the conveyance of a specific emotion.
By presenting both the �expected� visual elements prescribed by the European painting tradition and the �expected� modernist ideals, these works challenge the viewer to question the broadly excepted norms of what constitutes artistic composition.
The use of digital construction and presentation furthers this line of questioning by rejecting the materials used by both the European painterly tradition and the mid twentieth century minimalist schools.
