As a creative artist I use digital techniques with a specialism in abstract composition through colour, geometry and generative code.
I have described my process as generative code because I use programming to provide one stage of the creation of my work and therefore consider this work generative art. Although I use further creative methods to produce the final work.
"Generative art refers to any art practice where the artist uses a system that operates with some degree of autonomy, and contributes to or results in a completed work of art." - Philip Galanter (http://philipgalanter.com/resources/)
Order & chaos in my artwork
Through a part chaotic generative process and contrasting elements of order including varied levels of selection in the artworks composition, my art is intended to imply the chaos and order that help describe the nuances of being, and, wonder at our universe.
In part the work reflects the chaos of nature, nuclear physics, of human society and culture. Whilst additionally exploring the seeming randomness of external challenges, that shape our grasp on life, and our internal equilibrium.
On the other part, my work reflects through selective elements of composition, like geometry and hue, the surprising order and structures that also appear in nature and physics. Whilst also connecting with our desire to find order and control of our lives, that is equally part of our human condition.
The different techniques in the creative process are not only perceived in the apparent depth and sometimes visual complexity of the work, they often actually require the different states of mind I find myself shifting and meandering through in everyday life. So my artwork is an attempt to express my confused existential ponderings, on numerous levels.
