TAKE THE FORK, 2008, acrylic on canvas, 18 x 24 x 2.5 in.

I research patterns based on cellular structures, plant, animal and soil microorganisms, sea creature colorations, geological formations, and galactic and planetary nebulae. Then I abstract and juxtapose their similar organic shapes and surface properties. Here I have applied this technique to the human face, treating its topographical shadows as independent bodies floating or embedded within their own archipelagos. I am also available for work on commission, which includes an interview and photo shoot to collect my own impressions and reference materials.
