Matisse described his cut-outs as drawing with scissors… I don’t use scissors, but I do take a more modern approach to creating abstract compositions using cut out materials. My cut-outs begin in a digital playground of freestyle forms and color. As abstract components emerge on screen, a search for balance and hierarchy drives an iterative process. Digital ideas are made real with the mechanical execution of cutting, coloring and gluing. Typically featuring overlapping silhouettes, my work aims to acknowledge and highlight those interesting spaces created in between with vibrant palettes and material dimension.
