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...

IOTA, Art collector, K.I.A.

IOTA is a distributed painting. It is a single large artwork to exist in many different locations in 30 parts. It is a decentralized painting. Each individual work (24 x 18") exists as a standalone piece, but is connected to all others via horizontal, vertical, non-linear and color elements. Each piece however, is uniquely folded (its creases like a fingerprint), utterly unique within the collective. When a single section is on the wall, one knows it is connected  something much bigger than one sees, connected globally to others across countries, cultures, class, religions, time. (Metaphor!) The...

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....

Paper, Lesser?

Paper, Lesser?

Here's an ongoing series on paper -- they are a compression of larger canvas works, poems to a novel. They are continuing the linear-collagesque style, but all are done ‘en plein air’, sampling found materials by season & location; then schlepped back in the studio, where they are further shifted, drifted, glitched and remixed (see here for more deets). A number from this series have been sold outta the gate -- perhaps due to their human scale (most are only 18 x 22” framed); maybe cuz of the price (middle-class affordable); hopefully due to the fact that people resonate with the 21st...

Snowfolds & Chromadrifts

Flowasteppa acrylic on canvas, 72” x 52” x 1.5” The above painting (detail shot) came from two strands of work: 1) the outdoor monochromatic drift experiments, where I sifted wind-blown ash over arranged and analog-glitched found objects on snow; and 2) the ‘--Steppa’ works, high-color calligraphic and shift-chunked spraypaint pieces. (It’s also is a bit of a reaction against my own recent shiny-shiny.) With Flowasteppa (and others in the series) I laid raw canvas down on the ground on a -15° day, and, working with the wind and falling color, ghosted and pixelated the natural...

Unshackling Super Dubiousness, Shadowed

  A drawing, caught in chance diagonal shadows. Might let the random moment become more by penciling them in permanently. Original drawing, in ornate frame, HERE.
