As both an artist and a scientist, my work stems from the realization that the pursuit of scientific exploration shares many basic concepts with artistic exploration, the foremost being the attempt to see the world in new ways and to convey novel observations through experimentation. After several decades spent exploring both, I find that the way I approach and think about my artwork and scientific research are extremely similar, combining creativity, insight and rigor.
My artwork examines distortions of perception due to the limits of our physicality, our personal biases, and changes in perspective (both concrete and metaphorical). The multi-chrome pigments cause these works to change their appearance as the viewer moves past or sees them under different illumination over the course of the day. These changes speak to the malleability of our perception and it’s sensitivity to context and time.
