“I have always been interested in timely events that affect our human and planetary experience. To fully understand each work’s intent, one must be conscious of the work’s title. These multidimensional stretched canvas works bring an awareness to the complexities of our existence, the nuances of our perceptions and the limits of humanities current understandings of the universe. Through thought provoking contemplation and introspection, adjacent importance has been placed on the possible existence of spiritual realms, alternate dimensions and unsolved physical phenomenons recently brought to our attention through new found scientific discoveries and technologies,” he writes.
“The works are considered to be both abstract and figurative simultaneously using form signaling, modern color science and sacred geometries in their development. These practices clarify how we psychologically and emotionally interpret forms and colors while creating open ended conversations concerning the symbolic meanings of specific geometries and proportions. By creating these multi-dimensional structural works, I strive to build thought provoking objects that imagine our realities in a new light, leaving the viewer both inspired and enlightened.”
