My paintings strive to project an alternate sense of reality, that which is unperceivable by the naked eye. In order to find this other reality, I allow my subconscious to freely express itself. This is reflected in my background as a mathematician and astrophysicist. My mathematics deals with chaotic motions, where motions move in unpredictable ways. The subconscious allows patterns to be seen in the chaos, but laws of logic need to be followed. However, when I create art, my mind is in a completely different mode driven by my subconscious. While painting, the subconscious is at work throughout the entirety of time needed to complete a painting. My art has evolved significantly over the years, from natural recognizable elements to pure abstract expressionism and from bold, textured brush strokes to a subtle color palette. My latest work connects most strongly with who I am as an artist. Unlike my earlier work of intense color, this is done in mainly black, gray and white. The scenes show otherworldly landscapes and scenes with a sweeping apocalyptic beauty. Their desolation gives a sense of peaceful silence. This series grew out of the arrival of the pandemic in early 2020. The pieces have a sense of abstract expression, but viewers feel a deep connection to them as presenting a view of our world and times.
