I draw inspiration from the unconscious influence of golden ratios and their influence on the perception of beauty. Phi (the golden ratio of 1:1.618) is thought to be a mysterious number which has some related quantities and shapes. It appears repeatedly in the proportions of the human body, plants, animals, DNA, solar system, art and architecture, music, etc. I use this ratio as a constraint upon which to build my work. Typically this involves dividing the canvas up into a grid. Each section of the grid relates to its adjacent section using the golden ratio. Some of the grids become very complex and distorted while others are as simple as just two sections. By placing this limitation on my work it liberates me to freely explore composition, color and form without being bound by narrative.
