Murals

 

247 South Van Ness ave.

Commissioned by MightyBox Industries, this piece was the center piece for my 2016 exhibition, "Between Form and Void" which was housed inside this building.

This mural is built solely from rectangles, all of which are in 90° opposition to each other and descend from the ceiling at a 45° grade.

A RESIDENCE IN THE MISSION On Guerrero near 15th in the Mission District of San Francisco I hung off the side of this building in a rickety old painting platform painting this psychedelic / art nouveau style design.

In 2003 I was invited to create an installation at The 3rd Gallery in Amsterdam. For this piece I envisioned a form that invoked what I imagined my neural pathways to be structured like during this time. I had left San Diego and didn't know I would end up in San Francisco yet. I was floating for 6 months in the Netherlands watching my brain run the same tired program it was familiar with while at the same time trying to find a new way of seeing things without leaving the past too far behind. That process sort of looked like this.

peering into the unknown

In this collaboration with CalTech in Pasadena I was asked to create work which found common ground between art and science. As I considered the task I realized that artists and scientists are both looking deeply into the unknown and reporting back on what they see. The scientist searches for new data to support a hypothesis and an artist searches the dark depths of himself to find new unexplored realms of consciousness, and both share their finding in the world.

Data or organisms...

The world is information and that information has a form.

systems of rules

Life evolves over time through constraints, as does my art. Through setting rule structures for myself to create within, I've found consistent overlapping themes between my work, and patterns in nature. These inherent structures become evident over time and give me insight into the world and the invisible structures of my mind.

TERRA SF EVENT SPACE AND GALLERY This is inside the women's restroom of Terra on Harrison and 1st street in SF. For this space I wanted to use lines that referenced the female form. I used a soft S curve and had the composition lift skyward. The composition begins behind the toilets in the stalls and ends at the lights in the ceiling.

Here's the dining room of Lark in the Castro. This is what I consider to be my first real mural. I had to tape off the edges of each of these sweeping lines to ensure that they'd be as sharp and perfect. The client wanted something simple and elegant with a touch of color to set off the wall.
