It is important to note that none of my artwork is computer generated. The basic drawings are all done by hand using simple tools such as a ruler, compass, and circle templates. It can take from six weeks to several months to understand and decipher the concepts behind the drawing, a process which would ordinarily be performed by a computer. I do not use a calculator in order to create these paintings, I use my mind to do the math. The value of this process is that, as the painting is completed, I embody these patterns and concepts and carry them within myself.

These paintings are more than just decorative colors and patterns. There is a mathematical subject matter, as each painting is based upon an internally-consistent set of rules and stands as a type of “visual equation” or “visual math problem” . The paintings also refer to physics, and the rules which describe and govern the behavior of light waves.

This is a sculpture of a Flying Rainbow Lasagne (FRL). The FRL is the end result of applying a set of rules to the way that energy is allowed to move and behave. This shape has as it's basis the basic shape of a sphere that is morphed into four vortexes and finally, with the addition of a new dimension, forms the FRL shape. Like a Mobius Strip, The FRL is an "impossible" shape in that it only has one side: the 'inside' of one half-cone becomes the 'outside' of the next half-cone. (with "inside" being defined as a surface facing the interior of the FRL, and "outside" as a surface facing the floor or ceiling of the room) However, despite its' seeming impossibility, The FRL does not break any of the previously-established rules which govern the movement of energy in the universe and as a result is allowed to exist..

This painting extends a theme I have been exploring for several years based on the Mobius Transformation. Here, the pattern is taken to the extreme!

Created as a design element of a larger painting, this image is partially inspired by the Mobius Transformation and also by the physics of lightwaves. As in my other paintings, each color corresponds to a particular size and the color proportions related to each color remain consistent. The painting shows a matrix formed by an interlinking network of nested vortexes, with each vortex maintaining internally-consistent color proportions.
