I enjoy creating images that employ ideas from mathematical and philosophical sources. My drawings consist of continuous forms, impossible objects, and stretched spaces within which discovery of the content in a new way may lead to the wonder of curiosity.


Transformation of Infinity
15" x 20"
pencil on paper
2013

Galileo’s paradox of the infinite inspired this drawing. These nested spheres, evoking scientific models of Galileo’s time, show any radius of a smaller sphere as a subset of a radius of a larger sphere.


A Red Admiral Butterfly appears to make good this transformation.
