GALLERY 1  -  ROUGHS


By definition, a rough sketch is a study for a subsequent elaboration. This form of mark-making might be a set of thumbnail sketches or rough drawings of a potential design concept solution. They are uninhibited organic forms of free association and self-expression–options and interests that say something about us. There is a freedom to draw what and how we like, and it shows our individuality through all of the choices we make. 

My work has always been about detailed imagery. I have subconsciously been in this playground for a long time, creating intricate images as far back as I could remember. Recently, I’ve begun an exploration of ambiguous art that provides multiple acuities–depictions that entail a change in frame references–a reconstruct of a picture and its components. The process is organic and serendipitous. These are images that change in spite of perceptual grouping, often referred to as reversible images.  My method of deconstructing and reassembling fragments into a new and cohesive order somehow makes sense other times to be revisited and contemplated. And finally, these roughs are playfully worked out to a more formal presentation, with additional detailed colour, line texture, and shape assets.

GALLERY 2 - MATERIALS

This section of art is my ‘playground’ for experimenting with new materials and surface substrates. The transformations exhibited here are a cross-pollination of digital and analogue. For the most part, it takes a more biased form of graphic imagery, utilizing the bold practice of black and white art with some personal directness of expression.  

In this age of transition in which material and digital experience are in an unprecedented state of coexistence, our understanding of the physical is endlessly reshaped by advancements in technology. Various types of printmaking and digital printing techniques come into play stretching the boundary between the ‘artificial’ and ‘organic’.  Some forms can employ image transfer techniques, laser cutting, etching plates and silk screens which can add significantly to the final aesthetic potential.

GALLERY 3 - FLIGHT PATTERNS

Symmetry is pervasive in all living things. One of my latest series of creations has emerged from an inspiration with nature’s systems. Generating and reshaping strings of geometric structures and symbols, these creations thematically focus on emulating nature’s patterns.

Mimicking life’s genius provides me with a look at its systems. I happen to enjoy the inspiration from nature and the multitude of design patterns it offers.  A non-linear form of creation where I find myself intrigued, fascinated but also perplexed in when and where to stop. I work in an analog form initially and progress toward either a fully digital complement or a hybrid of both. Looking at our natural world and by changing our perspective on life, we are hopeful that we can improve our world through designs and take advantage of nature’s ingenuity.
