EXHIBITIONS

2022.04.25 MIT Graduate Arts Showcase


A Scientist
(2021, acrylic on canvas, 36″ x 24″)

 


A Perspective
(2016, acrylic on canvas, 48″ x 36″)

 

Represents the observables in our surroundings ranging from the sub-atomic to the super massive. The range scales up from the center of the canvas to the exterior with each square-unit incrementing according to the Fibonacci sequence, a pattern that is intrinsic to many phenomenon in nature.

The canvas is filled with depictions of this range: from sub-atomic particles –> atomic structure –> molecular dynamics –> cellular dynamics –> multicellular interactions in neurons –> neuronal interactions in the human brain (left lobe vs right lobe) –> the day-to-day human viewpoint on Earth –> planetary objects in a solar system –> galactic plane –> super-massive black holes.

(from Topiary Park in Colombus, Ohio)


“What is it that’s taken hold of me, for me to carry on like this in relentless pursuit of something beyond my powers?”

(Claude Monet)


“Monet was riddled with frustration and self-doubt as he worked on this series. In April 1893, shortly before returning home to Giverny, he lamented: ‘It’s a stubborn encrustation of colors, that’s all, but it’s not painting…’ Close examination of Monet’s cathedral canvases makes evident the artist’s protracted labor. His layering of paint-often beginning with a foundation of neutrals, over which the color effects are achieved-contrasts with the flickering immediacy and bravura of the earlier works.”

(from Monet and Boston at the MFA Boston)
