Acceleration Still

// “Acceleration,/still; Cocooned escapes, you, me;/X-1 Papillons” -2009-Ongoing. Size variable; original flat image 27' x 16'. Acrylic and collage on aluminum panels; steel, nuts, bolts. (See four different iterations below) 2D, 3D,4D This project is a two-dimensional painting, hung three-dimensionally, recombinant over time (4D) as an installation with infinite potentials -- or impossible promises.   The painting has never been seen  in its first 27 x 15' flat state, even by the artist (it was done in sections); due to the number of panels and complexity of arrangement, no configuration...

Turbine Descending A Staircase

Decided to do a radical freestanding remix of the sculpture Acceleration Still. Completely spontaneous, no pre-planning and/or fabricating of interior armature, similar to how I approach my outdoor works (ya work with what ya got.) All part of my recombinant painting, sculpture, installation series, where the work is remixable, intermixable, and infinitely unfinished. The original A/S painting (original flat arrangement of the sculpture, and which will never be seen) is 27 x 16', 300 aluminum panels. This iteration actually references the interior content, which is a butterfly wing composed...

Statement & Bio

Resequenced paintings. Sideways palimpsests. Snow collages, DNA'd cowboy hats, kabuki jet engines... (See HERE for some being developed; password by request.) One aspect of my practice involves slicing images into linear sections, taking them apart, and then reassembling them, often with interleaving. This allows a visual cohesion of disparate cultural and temporal material while giving a multiplicity of views with many unique readings possible. It also enables time-shifting parts out of sequence, a compression and expansion of scale, and a disruption or connected flow of form — all of which...

In Everyone’s head Juliet

In everyone’s head Juliet looks different. How much to reveal, how much to conceal? My recent paintings, which are enveiled in stainless-steel, barely show their images through the metal threading -- and in certain lighting, the reflectivity of the steel nearly obliviates what lies beneath. “Read between the lines”, literally. Previous works too: hidden layers & encoded information. Painting as a suggestion, as poem; the viewer finishes each piece in their own head. Post-creation, these writings were to give insight to some of the ideas embedded in each of my works... but they’ve...

injunjetenjun

“injunjetenjun” by K.I.A. 2009, 60” x 40”, C-print on metallic photo paper. This series evolved while researching the “Acceleration / Still...” sculpture. Looking over hundreds of aviation blueprints and schematics, I kept seeing tribal masks. (And feel it was a glimpse of a metempsychosis -- the experience of my own past, or perhaps even future, lives.) Once again, my multi-temporal/cross-cultural/machine v. handmade themes arise... So this piece is described as a jet engine totem pole, or a Haida space shuttle. It is a blueprint of a jet engine, done in the manner of west-coast...
