"In that I produce large scale paintings, it is my intent to present a mathematical picture. The Osculating Ellipse is a recurring theme in the work of recent years in addition to the Black and White Series. Osculating Ellipse is integrated with Apollonian circles and asymptote. Collinear points are key. It is my idea to form the osculating ellipse of a sufficient plane curve by graphing cubic parabola, ellipse, collinear points and diagonal straight lines with calculation to find a perpendicular intersect. The ellipse has a 31 degree clockwise rotation finding spatial stationary position."

"I work with the one dimension of color, (that of value). Consider white and black, as there is an additive identity and additive inverse property between white and black that accordingly are color. White lines on a black field are expressions of a norm that borders between logic and the empirical to balance the spatial experience. The following list of color is present in this geometric work: black and white. Basically, black and white is visually dramatic for the picture field."
