This is the work I've made during the last few years. I've been so much with life; becoming an architect and dealing with a brain tumor, and saving my little brother from homeless meth addiction and, you know, the usual pandemic and civil unrest stuff, and falling in love, and I've been meditating a lot on Place.
Specifically, my place...
The pictures are exploring the way space, material, class, capital, mythology, science, art, history, language, symbology, and, increasingly, information technology, all inform the visual experience of life. I think it's fascinating the way that all these lay on top of each other to inform/create humans' interactions with the environment...the interplay of thinking and being, remembering and becoming...moving and un-remembering...the map may not be the territory, but the "landscape", per se, can only exists in relationship to a viewer.
I love drawing. I love painting. I love the interesting ambiguous areas between the two. I, for one, believe that the important things happen in the doing, in the messy in-between space of not-knowing; in the moments of discovery; the mistakes.
Art is about mistakes.
I hope you enjoy the work, I hope it feeds you the way it feeds me. It's such an agitating world. Can be. But I work really hard to put rhythm into the fragments, here. Balance. Harmony.
Please reach out with any questions or comments, I appreciate any and all feedback.
