Incarceration | AR - 15 | Supremacy & Oppression
As a digital artist I use photography, video, and mixed media imagery to create a visual interpretation of my life, and societal constructs at large.
An important vision of my art is to convey a dynamic artistic aesthetic within the framework of an ambiguous and recollected life:
Magic and Loss.
When utilizing the technical and creative process of various digital
media the main focus is on the visual structure and the
subjective composition of a piece.
This artistic pursuit can be found in various series and individual works, such as my 2017 series entitled "Linear Data".
Elemental | Mindfulness | Abstraction
Often in my designs there are elemental images of nature that are forged into abstraction, and created to solidify the background as a cohesive whole. Also there are secondary forms, and multi-layered constructs which help to form contrasting ambiguities. All coming together within various levels of geometric shapes and symbols. In the end producing a visually powerful and invigorating body of art.
In recent years my work has become more reflective with an introspective quality. And with meticulous effort, it has evolved into a defining artistic vision. The work has also guided me toward a spiritual sensibility that reflects a desire for personal accountability, recollection, and self awareness.
With respect to innovation and contemporary design, I am
always looking for influences that affect the way I approach my work: Various disciplines such as dance, theater, poetry, film and
electronic music have all played a significant part
in my growth as a digital and video artist.
In making the digital connection, the methodology is to remain true to
the digital process i.e. recognizing and imploring the intricate
micro tonal possibilities inherit to the computer,
electronic media, digital, and video art in general.
Some of the works are produced in series where underlying patterns, rhythms, color and tonal variations move from one work to the next.
The image translation and transformation can either be revealed
as noise, a visual drone, disintegrating loops of color and form,
visual calculation or a chance encounter. All of my work
as an artist is a work in progress. Some pieces are developed
not to have an ending, but are infinitely changing and being remixed.
There is a light that glows within oneself that is not unlike a growing imagination and the scent of mint and tulips in spring.
The digital awareness of creativity can be found in the conscious mindset and the emotional construct of the heart.
Know that all things are not always left behind in our interior rooms. But emerge within a museum of hopes and dreams.
Fluid ambiguities and interwoven hints of nostalgia emerge digitally from vaporwave memories and mallsoft moments.
