Sizing and Price Examples:

My painting prices are $500 per square foot. 

Gallery canvas squares that I like to work with are:
12″ x 12″ x 1.5″ for $500
24″ x 24″ x 1.5″ for $2,000
36″ x 36″ x 1.5″ for $4,500

Multiple canvases to make up a single painting is fine. Samples of this are shown in Hello, Goodbye and Purple Patches (top three images below). 

Artist Statement:

I began painting precise, geometric abstract artwork with pop culture-influenced themes about twenty years ago. 

With my work, I wanted to produce clean and precise paintings with a bold visual impact. My work is typically on square canvas in a wide range of sizes. Colorful shapes are formed and outlined with sharply defined black acrylic paint. These shapes often represent the general theme while telling a story.  

I developed a painting system that consists of rulers and compass bows to assist in my desired precision. My final step in my painting process is when I paint the black outline edges freehand with a small brush. While I do not, most suspect that I use tape or masks to create the black outlines due to the precise nature of my paintings.  

Pop culture – especially music – is a common ground that I share with many. I adapt popular music or popular cultural references by abstracting the themes onto canvas. The solid blocks of color and black lines guide the visual story. When connecting pop culture themes and my geometric painting style, I create an easy accessibility for those that may not be familiar with abstraction in visual art.
