Shred, splice, destroy, create

Inception paintings, paintings inside paintings. Many works made using found wind and sourced items across many specific locations and climates, destroyed and spliced together to make a single hybrid work. New work in the ongoing CRISPR series, which are a compression of time and space, experience and place, more on that HERE.   Some more in the series:

CRISPR SCULPTR

This work consists of large paintings distributed (into a sculpture (that is a recombinant installation (that is a function))). Stage one (all the images below) is done; later stages are to be created in site-specific locations nationally and globally over the next few years, the work accreting to an enormous size... VORTEX 35' dia. Its multivalent presentation modes [SEE IMAGES BELOW] enables it to explore many ideas. The sculpture is a mutable metaphor,  a hackable technology, a language or a system or an open function for divining insight. Abstract ideas experienced concretely...

A sculpture that is a function. This first stage will be ambitiously big, but it will grow even larger in scale as subsequent parts are made over time in other international settings or residencies....

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...
