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...

Co Op Art

This is a a crowd-sourced painting, to be co-created by participants from all around the world. The painting is created from hundreds of discrete blocks, whose color and location have chosen by participants. It might take weeks, months or years to complete, it could end up wild or restrained,  harmonic or dissonant,  many-colored or monochrome... The work will have people from all continents contributing --  all backgrounds, ages, cultures, races, faiths, genders and so on, all next to each other. Groups, collectives, institutions, charities and corporations may also participate....

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. Cyanotype series, 21st and 19th century concepts spliced together... and so on....

distributed sculpture, decentralized installation

The decentralized sculpture / distributed painting idea extended outdoors; hi concept - lo materials, geotagged  by site-specific materials. Many discrete units -- ideally to be thousands -- comprising a larger volumetric painting (sculpture).  Below to be scaled up x 100. Monolith, column, detritus, array, line... developing. Various iterations below, some digital rendering of larger scale versions, then below that some images of CRISPR SCULPTR, a larger distributed sculpture, both real world and mocked up versions.   CRISPR SCULPTR a recombinant...

Artitechture

This work is a 12' high ephemeral architectonic palimpsest, a crystalline tornado poem, an optically shifting spaceship skyscraper, a bas-relief diagonal tower of babel. Future iterations will be even bigger -- 30' high or long (on the ground), painting as monumental architecture. (And art as physical & mental challenge -- ephemeral does not equal effortless.  Art as intense sport, as Sisyphean marathon.) As it is done directly on the wall, it can only be experienced in one location. And as all walls eventually come down, it's lo-fi high beauty that can only be experienced for a moment...

CRISPR SCULPTR

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 and added to the work, the installation accreting to an enormous size. This work expresses the ephemeral, the ineffable, and the infinite. 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...

What An Artist Does

IMAGE: recombinant sculpture; resequenced paintings; palimpsest series, and brand new series UPDATE:  I spent 70hrs/week for 6 weeks at an art residency, a CRISPR SCULPTR, this painting-as-sculpture-as-installation-as-function ... artwork as endurance sport, as improvisational music, as gene-edited... here's some images of the recombinant work: See here for many other  Projects Every so often someone asks me "What do you do everyday?". I'm surprised at people's surprise at how much there is to do as an artist -- I suppose the romantic idea of just making stuff whenever 'inspired'...
