The artist's subjects are primarily complete abstractions or highly abstracted people and things, mostly in acrylic paint. The artist says about his work, "I would describe my work as a fusion between a Fisher-Price toy and the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey; Transcendent shapes that loom in an unfamiliar environment made up of bold offbeat colors. My ideas all start simple, often just as a shape or a composition, then I continuously manipulate and evolve into further unrecognizable forms. I aim to bring these two-dimensional shapes to life with vivid color combinations and disorienting perspectives and depths. My ultimate goal is to fuse a sense of playfulness with an abstract feeling of looming confrontation without using any real narrative devices."
