''Contrast sparks interest. One visual aspect of an object often goes unnoticed without the juxtaposition of its opposite. Through searching for elements that accentuate each other via resistance, I strive to construct a visual statement that attracts attention, and therefore use. To this end, I seek tension and balance by pitting loose vs. tight, curve vs. angle, warm vs. cool, shiny vs. matte, smooth vs. coarse, and historical vs. contemporary.''
