"Spectrum invites viewers to explore the multitude of ways color is approached and experienced. Every person experiences color, yet each person's experience of color is unique. Even those with limited or no vision have innate neurological sensations affiliated with color. Color perception is influenced by personal background, memories, moods, and emotions. Although traditional color theory informs aspects of this body of work, there are also approaches to color brought about by new synthetic materials from an American perspective.


Hue, value, saturation, translucency/opacity, texture, and luminosity, are the six recurring dimensions of color integrated throughout this body of work. Hue is the name of the color, like ultramarine blue. Value is the movement between lightness to darkness. Saturation (or intensity) is the dullness or brightness of a color. Translucency/Opacity refers to a pigments refractive index: how much light can or cannot pass through a pigment/material. Texture is the physicality of the materials being used; from shiny high gloss materials to gritty, matte materials. Luminosity is the use of physical light to affect a color.


I ask the viewer to consider not only how these works look, but how the works make them feel. What memories are touched upon when seeing these works? What emotions do these works speak to within each individual?"
