IOTA, Art collector, K.I.A.

IOTA is a distributed painting. It is a single large artwork to exist in many different locations. 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. The idea is that each owner sees the work as something bigger, connected globally to others across countries, cultures, class, religions, time. The single work (120" x 108") is to show every ten years,...

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...

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.
