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...

This whole series has a very complex bas-relief ‘subtext-ure’, which is overlaid with a second, nearly-hidden-but-thematically-related angular pattern created with the mirror tape; third and fourth levels of reference are sanded or etched-on before or after the main spray paint and oilstick layers. So: the painting reveals different information at different angles and in changing light. This is most apparent in “Hear Her, There He” (also the biggest in the series, 84” x 60”), where...
