In 2000 I did my first painting with geometric offsets. These began with small bars at the edges of fields. They soon grew into a variety of formats. Some are simple: a colored field is juxtaposed to another field the same size of a different color. The majority of them are more complex. The layered ones happen spontaneously with little planning. The ones with vertical bars are based on layered ones that are flipped on their sides. As in my early work, the figure is asserting itself, but now in the form of a bar instead of the bimorphs of the eighties and nineties.
