The human relationship with the natural world is the primary source of inspiration for my work. I am interested in how we attempt to create our perceived human reality with complex systems of mathematics, science, and technology, but with nature as the backdrop and laboratory. Mathematics is the language of nature, but it also distorts the perception of natural beauty and mystery. Technology allows us to explore the universe, but also encourages us to manipulate nature to our peril. I am intrigued by our innate proclivity to impose rational explanations and limits upon what is natural, irrational and unconscious and to unmask life’s invisible mysteries.
My most recent work is inspired by my interest in the multiverse or “many-worlds” theory of quantum mechanics. The idea that the 3-dimensional world is illusionary resonates with me as a painter who makes paintings that are, in their very essence, nothing but an illusion. Recent paintings juxtapose seemingly random passages of paint with more intentional elements such as photography and mechanical drawings. Inks and watercolors blend and react, creating forms that become almost organic in nature— flowing, bursting, seething, or vibrating—while the mechanical drawings, intertwining amongst the ink pools, connote energy fields and structure, creating new and different worlds unto themselves. The process often seems in conflict, but my intent is to bridge these conflicts in a method that is primarily unexpected and always enlightening.
