Nothing to see here… yet

I am currently working on two bodies of work. The first method I use involves collecting images in my environment then arranging and collaging them into new and interesting forms. I use photography in combination with found imagery to create complex architectonic spaces. I often collage several images together to make more stimulating forms. I then overlap these collages in transparent layers using projection to generate even more complexity. My intention is to play into the perceptions of the viewer and to lead the eye through a maze of formulated spaces. I also use process as a way to build forms out of chance. I look at things from the everyday world such as stains and spots. What makes a dribble or splash of paint so appealing? I am interested in mental mapping and how the brain organizes and processes information. The paintings are not of a specific location in space and time, but of the mental map of the mind as it responds to a place. The work is the plotting of a process, a method, a flow of information, a system in the mind, a perception rather than what is physically existing. I use transparency, color, layering, motion, chance, automatic drawing, as well as instinct and intuition to represent simultaneity. Color is something I choose spontaneously but is based on the colors of consumer culture and advertising. It is also loosely related to electromagnetic, electrochemical, and wiring imagery of the brain. There is a strong relationship between the ways in which the brain is coded and the methodical organization of the work. The intuitive reiteration of abstracted layers is the process used in the composition of the work. Whether it is interior or exterior spaces, chance, industrial buildings, a myriad of pipes, the New York City subway, neurological tests, brains scans, a stain, a dribble, a line, content is something that is important to composition. The main focus of the work is invented spaces and landscapes. The outcome of my paintings is meant to convey an experience of a place, existing or not. My intention is to evoke a physical experience in the viewer not just with sight but with multiple senses. Using photography and other imagery as a catalyst, I create paintings that explore color relationships, mental mapping, geometry, and architecture. joined Society6 on September 8, 2013
