Shift

"untitled" acrylic, wax on paper
24"x32", 2008

I was asked to post some of the statements I made about my current work: the work that is represented in the Shift exhibition.

Shift
v.
To move to a different position, or be moved to a different position.
n.
A change in the position of a spectral line representing a change in frequency. 

This work is intended to invite and/or provoke a visual shift. The shift can be phenomenal, metaphoric, and/or allegoric. These works are to be joyous objects of contemplation: a bit clumsy, a bit gosh, but unapologetically optic.

I have been considering:
Biological systems
String theory
Profundity
Incarnational theology 
Fractals 
Semaphore signaling
Joy
