My work is insatiable curiosity manifest in visual form. Questions inspired by science, mathematics, philosophy, and humanity for which I have no answers form the basis of my art. I approach these investigations through explorations in painting, installations, new media and social art.
I paint in oil and mixed media, and consider the works as an ongoing conversation with myself. Abstract, and heavily influenced by physics and mathematics, the current series uses mathematical mappings to transform images from 3D renderings to 2D compositions. Whereas these paintings are doodles on the indefiniteness of reality, my installations are musings on our interactions with the technology we create. For these installations, I mix 3D gaming technology with virtual reality, or found objects such as test tubes and surveillance cameras to produce site specific large scale works. Some of the installations are also social art projects that are constructed of objects that I hand craft or that I have manufactured for me and then alter to my specifications. Sometimes I pose questions to a population and let the responses become the art – as directly as binding the responses into a book. Because my social art projects grow out of thoughts that are inspired by the way we interact directly with each other.
My background in mathematics and science leads me to wonder where we are heading with technology, what we will find, and how we will react. My art, in the form of inquiry, only leads me to more questions, but that’s a good place for me since the journey is the goal.
