The Glide Ride (detail), 9x12" Ink on Paper

"The Gem Clique"


This series focuses on the insatiable desire for luxury, excess, and beauty. Gems and precious stones are reimagined as simple geometric forms. The jewels are part of an interplanetary galaxy of beautiful transport ships, beautiful people, elegant places, and stellar moments. With simple strokes in ink painted by wooden dowels, it is a play on minimalism vs. opulence, and also a visual release of the craving for all that sparkles.
