I have an obsessive nature and I am drawn to certain forms because I feel they can express a multiplicity of information yet in an abstracted way. I often use complex curves, waveform shapes and undulating recursive patterns as references and metaphors to physics and psychology. Waves are a spatial form that can relate to thought as in states of emotion, rhythm, and the cycle of life and it can relate to matter as in water waves, hills and valleys, radio waves, electrical waves, wave probability theory, and etc. It is a place where matter and thought can meet.

Math is inherent to the art. My interest in recursion, scalability and tiling combined with the process of computer modeling allows me to manipulate nurb surfaces into complex curvatures to discover interesting spacial qualities.

Print from computer rendering of waves on waves.

Inspired from the duality of waveforms (the crest and trough are approximately the same) and influenced from watching water waves and noticing the seeming infinite recursion of smaller and smaller waves riding on the larger waves riding on the larger waves. Self similar repeating piggy-backing on each other yet remaining on the same single surface.

16 hydraulically pressed tiles. Each tile is identical and asymmetrical in 90 degree rotation while symmetrical in 180 degree rotation and symmetrical front to back with 90 degree rotation.

Inspired from complex curvature, saddle shapes and bowl shapes, repetition and waveforms.
