For the past year or more, I've been focused on two bodies of work: the Insights and Indexes series. They are sets of interrelated pieces that inform each other and operate both individually and as one larger work. Each piece is a painstaking construction of layered high-resolution imagery. They're labor intensive works. Many steps are taken and then taken again; many choices are made only by trial and error. A third series, Puzzles, also continues—in a bit less linear manner.
There is a lot of earlier work, most of it not featured here, except for the images of work directly below (and just above). Most of these works are also executed in series and multiples exist. Inquire for more details.
In earlier pieces, I often worked with letterforms and language, which sometimes operated with meaning and sometimes did not. We are strongly programmed to regard black designs (which happen to be letters) on a white background as NOT just shapes and negative spaces—yet it is what they are—as abstract, symbolic, empty or magical as we wish them to become.
