Ethan’s work in jewelry and painting utilizes line, form, space, and texture to create aesthetically pleasing compositions. While Ethan often references Art Deco and the Bauhaus school, his work focuses on craft and technique and is formalist in nature. The viewer is able to experience the work from multiple angles, allowing them to understand it with greater comprehension. The true beauty of these mediums is expressed through innovative experimentation and the making of his own tools and techniques. Ethan asks, “What if I modify this technique in a certain way and how will that change the outcome?”.
