Much of my work involves coming to terms with the abundance of technology-driven information overload we casually experience in modern day society. For my paintings, I use acrylics and india ink on canvas (or wood panels) to create a post-modern world that visually represents data in its raw form, existing within multiple theoretical dimensions of spacetime. The thematic visual focus rests on the intricacies of the direct and indirect interaction between the viewer and the abstraction of this data-driven internal conflict which forces us, as a society, towards rapid self-actualization.
For this project, I simply wanted to create something that someone would feel was worth reading considering the political environment and overall disillusionment of so many institutions. The main character, from one of my paintings, "I Feel Loved" (2010), floats from planet to planet, disillusioned by the way civilizations repeat atrocities towards each other. There are keyword cyphers, codes, lots of fun stuff for the reader to deep dive into if they are so inclined. It's all in the spirit of mystery and intrigue.
Of course, contained in those pages could be the secret to unlocking the wonders of the universe... you never know.
