No Hear Hear, No There There

No Hear Hear, No There There

This work fuses the silver palimpsest series with some of my text series, as well as my linear mandala/DNA spectrogram/sliced collage approach. It's also transtemporal -- there is a complex bas-relief texture of a Victorian petit point motto that reveals beneath the 21st century material. (The reflective quality of which allows the colors in the room, or the viewer, to resolve/dissolve into the piece. It also creates a shifting or unstable optical appearance as one moves around the work, with the different textures or sections luminescing at different angles or time of day.) The text...

Just had a two hour studio visit with a curator from the AGO,  linking the work from the early linear A/B/A/B/ collages done in Tokyo through the remxible installations and sculpture work to the digital ice graffiti, laser palimpsest and outdoor ephemeral art, to the latest genetically modified object explorations...

Turbine Descending A Staircase

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...

Here's a grid grab from Instagram of some works at collectors' (Italy, Canada, a yacht); a couple shots of a public installation; some studio  context shots and naturesque photos. I use IG for quicker, more casual shots of work, gifs, videos of work, shots of ideas, inspriations, along with some photography. (Never selfies, tho.)
