This series’ DNA is the ash-drifted earthworks spliced with the linear collage aesthetic. The paintings were done en plein air, in various weather conditions from -20 to +30º, using local found wind and flora. They’ve been done in Canada, the US, and Mexico so far, and in various climates. The intent is to complete more in various locations across the world, and to show them collectively (edge to edge) as one massive megacollege, a world wide web of work. The series will accrete meaning as more locations/nations are added — and as some countries disappear, or even some climatologies change. As works are purchased and dispersed, I like the idea of some future exhibition necessitating transnational negotiations for showings of the entirety of the series… a United Nations of Paintings.

These works approach nature or landscape through a digital lens, a glitching or disruption of the natural. They also use music produciton techniques such as sampling (found materials),  timestretching (artificial extension of form), looping (repetition), delay (diminishing repetition of form) and glitching (disruption/destruction to creative effect.)

Inquire for details.
