RGB skull update with gold leaf

Apr 22, 2016

The RGB is more subtle in this, but it is getting closer to the feel I was imagining. The idea here is about how we experience life now through Red, Green & Blue lights. The cassette represents old technology,  with the shortcomings and ephemeral quality of recording our efforts. The tools and bones surrounding the…

Ascent & Descent of Resourcefulness

Apr 22, 2016

Ascent / Descent of man. Resourcefulness in regards to dreams and solutions to difficult challenges. OK, flying over land. My goal was to have some textural patterns that would clearly be agricultural. This is still way-in-progress. My other intent was the Monopoly™ houses. More resolved, but will be in the additional areas surrounding the flying…

Some Combines of the Rhombus Paintings

Apr 17, 2016

There seems to be some potential for experimenting with combinations of different rhombus polyptych’s. I have been looking at how this may work into a much larger statement. The idea being that I have more than one individual piece that can be displayed in many potential forms. A type of narrative that is more in…

A couple of studio pictures

Apr 17, 2016

Just a couple of quick “candid” studio photos while working. I left some tools in there to get a perspective of some of the sizes. The wall to the left shows a messy area, but most importantly, the silhouette stencil of my flying man.

Thinking about man’s resourcefulness and the ability to learn, grow and recover what has been lost.

Start Sign – Blue Sky Thinking

Apr 4, 2016

“Blue Sky Thinking” is… …Thinking that is not grounded or in touch in the realities of the present. The proportion and symbolic silhouette is that of a stop sign. Hopefully there is enough graphic alignment with the original intent of the shape to be recognizable — but this with an entirely different conclusion. An entirely…

Texas Full of Tokyo’s

Mar 29, 2016

Take the expansive space of Texas with its iconic shape, then overlay into that the most dense city in the world. An experiment of a densely populated the area and let’s see what comes of this. East & West collide. Many notions of both places can be construed. If you were to take these opposing…

USA & Tokyo Land Efficiency Model – Phase I

Mar 25, 2016

Thinking about the density of Tokyo and what it would be like to reduce our overall land footprint in the the United States to a microscopic level. I chose 10 locations to more than equal our population with a 25 year estimated advance in growth. All living areas, cities that already have a dense population that…

There will be digital printed canvases mixed with painted canvases + stenciled spray painted areas. “If Necessity is the Mother of Invention, Then is…

TEXASWORLD Plan Acres in Texas: 171,904,640 World Population: 6,602,224,175 = 38.5 people per acre. Density Goal: 10 dwellings/acres = 3.8 people per dwelling. If the world was turned into a Monopoly® Game. How long would it take to become unbalanced again? Can we make everything even? Is equality a possibility? Let’s give everyone the same…

Refugees of Eden

Dec 18, 2015

Refugees of Eden. Those escaping a now dead tree. This is a “serious doodle” based on an idea I had while all of the debates regarding the Syrian refugees were trying to find new countries in which to escape.. A land that was once home, is now no longer hospitable. Now their new reality is…

Andrew, a very heartfelt “thank you” for wanting to acquire these for Nin. Both of these works share a particular use of…

Hidden Decoy

Dec 15, 2015

An oxymoron, The attraction is hidden. A decoy that would lead an unsuspecting duck to its demise. The surface now being camouflaged obscures its intent. This being both something to attract and hide is a curious combination. It’s a mixed-metaphor and begs a question of the purpose. Many times we are attracted to dangerous situations…

If I loose my grip, will I take flight?

Nov 24, 2015

“If I loose my grip, will I take flight?” a lyric from a Bruce Cockburn song called Strange Waters. This is quite wonderful double entendre regarding holding on to things that either hold you down or potentially keep you safe vs the idea of hanging on to a branch on a cliff, or an airplane wing…

Sisyphi

Nov 20, 2015

I have this thought that has been progressing and I am starting to get more of a positive feeling about the combination of figures. A lot of talk with this work has been centered around the contrast of the two scenes. Thoughts about location and activity. How we are not naturally able to coexist. While…

Triggers Murmuration

Nov 14, 2015

This canvas is a work in progress utilizing some of the symbols from my “anti-flag” which I am now considering more of a “trigger” flag. Flags tend to be some thing people are for – this flag is about what people are against. The murmuration is a way of capturing an initially beautiful image that…

Life Remote *more*

Oct 25, 2015

Life Remote These are in progress. I have somewhat of an idea that is not quite ready yet, but I am still working on this concept. To me it’s like a poem of words that we use in an automatic way. I think it can be a fun idea to think that our lives are…

Triggers Flag or Anti-Flag

Oct 19, 2015

I have been thinking about what it would look like to combine a bunch of trigger symbols into one flag that might summarize many “anti-sentiments.” It really started when observing
