The current work has evolved from my long-term interest in figure drawing, and my fascination with organic geometries found in the natural and scientific world. Rather than attempting to reduce the figure into its primary geometric components, I seek to expand on the volumes and vectors inferred from the figure’s pose.

One result of these investigations has been the realization of an affinity with my painting style and particle track diagrams documenting subatomic particle collisions. A series of non-representational paintings have used these diagrams as compositional elements, which are transformed by the introduction of depth and color. In this way, scientific phenomena take on an aesthetic and spiritual dimension.

The medium is oil pastel on museum board. The pastel is first applied and blended using turpentine. Additional layers are added and blended with the fingers.
