2D

Running current through my work is this idea of motion and sound; those two themes create an ambiance of life. Colors play quite importantly transforming the flat, stark, blank oblivion of a 2D vertical plane into a portal. Curves and gradients provide movement when there is stillness. In combination, synesthesia, an internal auditory sensation.

 

From the abyss came the cosmos itself

These studies form a collection of imagery that captures the notion of the expanse, everything coming into being from the void. Reimagining within our visible field, the birth of concealed elements that shape our reality, to express this moment that is both metaphysical and scientific; the magical moment when everything came into being.

Fabric

In 2016 five pieces were made within eight weeks. Each session was set as an intention of impressing time through color movements. Colors are expressed in depth, through lighting, shade, reflection, and form through change, repetition. Each color form creates a fabric. A fabric of time.

Metallic Spheres

The paradox of traveling without moving. Inwards like a Shaman shifting through altered states, deep into the vast inner space of the imagination. The mystery of the Metallic Spheres lies between Worlds, gatekeepers to unperceivable dimensional realms outside of our own. Sentient technology, possibly as old as the Universe itself. All powerful. None malevolent, yet seemingly omnipotent.
