synchronicity, splicing, stacked time

Genetically modified time; this ongoing series of paintings are a visual metaphor for lifetimes over eons, and situations, talents,  and people spliced across them all as revealed by synchronicities (more below). The single soul as an infinite collage of lessons and experience over eons. (Also: Branes in string theory, a soul as a membrane crossing spacetime.)  -  K.I.A., 36 x 30", acrylic on paper on wood panel.  (72" versions in development). Synchronicities are the rhythm across a song spanning many lives. For the last little while, I've been experiencing an extraordinary...

Crystalline Machine Hurricane Rain

Crystalline Machine Hurricane Rain

This work came from a dream where it was raining words. As each drop hit your skin you felt its meaning. A storm was Shakespearean, a shower haikus. A hurricane the library of Alexandria, lived in a deluge. All the works in the series -- hybrids of painting, drawing, collage, installation and sculpture -- have very complex bas-relief forms (architectonic, crystalline, and organic) with linear and smeared color on reflective surfaces  that optically shift with the changing light of day (or season, or room), and flatten and expand in depth due to the angle of viewing.  Each painting or on-the-wall...

Infecting installation, spliced cyanotypes & dangerous sculptures

Infecting installation, spliced cyanotypes & dangerous sculptures

A long, skinny painting that connects all the art in the space like a neural network. An installation that infects  the exhibition, its colorful component parts migrating over time through and around the other works, framing, enhancing, colonizing, barricading them. A massive wall painting to be decentralized over time, its 30 parts moving out globally, to flow back for exhibition every 10 years, a murmuration that builds narratives and networks over decades. A dangerous painting. An even more dangerous sculpture. A series of resequenced and genetically modified paintings. Works made with...
