Artist statements: Altered StatesIn the ‘Altered States’ series, I aim to investigate the effect of psychedelic color within the context of human emotion that work together to reflect various states of being: representing, happy, sad, pensive or exited…
Employing the physics of multi-dimensional layering, I try to produces works that play on the illusory perception of color space, rendering color fields—phenomena that I likens to “color auras”—They radiate and glow off the surface of the artworks, and that morph and pulsate as one moves around them. Using various media such as film within light-boxes, or digital c-prints on acrylic panels, or projection, the compelling works become visually stimulating and intellectually satisfying in layers. Like Vasa and Ozenfant some of my hereos, these works transform color theory from the realm of mere physics, rendering it as something living, breathing, and exiting.
