My series paintings are based on general themes. The parameters of Schema have been the predominant
single figure and the visual elements that work with and against it. An early job I had was in helping my father, who is a computer engineer, copy schematics from paper to mylar. In the transfer it occurred to me that these symbols represented a working design graphicly. I know as much about electronic diagrams now as I did then. What struck me at the time was that there were people who would look at these schematics and know what they represented. In Schema, simple geometric symbols encounter the figure in ways that suggest plan and structure.
