Artist Statement 

My work since 2017 is inspired by Bitcoin.  Some of the work is the visual activity of the Bitcoin and Lightning Network, and others incorporate the brilliant Satoshi Nakamoto White Paper in with the paint.  


My style is to use formal value in my paintings. Formalism is a way to understand art in a different way. Formalism means that a painting is entirely determined by its form - the way it is made - in a purely visual, compositional way.  Formalism means that as an artist, I can choose to emphasize compositional elements, like line, form, color, shape, and texture, rather than realism and content.
