Early 2000s

Immediately after taking a break from (which shortly became exiting) grad school at UH, I shifted from making painting based on the drawing system I’ve since returned to, and began making hard edge paintings like below, about which I wrote (at the time) were partly the result of the influence of first generation video games and also that “post painterly abstractions are not only icons of high of high art but also of lounge aesthetic; while such a view romanticizes bourgeoise escapist tendencies, I’ve already also confessed a love of video games.”
