My paintings and drawings deal exclusively with scientific ideas. I paint what scientists and mathematicians study and conceptualize. For many years I have incorporated scientific images and notation in my artwork. The science and mathematics in my paintings come from current research.
Life, matter, all the universal forces, as well as art, form complex systems. My work attempts to describe how the many different parts are linked and integrated. Combining the elegance of science and the visual richness of art is the focus and goal of my work.
I have shown in galleries, universities, and museums, in group and solo exhibits, and have several commissions hanging in scientific institutions. I am represented in the book “Colorado Abstract, Painting and Sculpture” and in the poetry journal “Sin Fronteras: Writers Without Borders", Las Cruces, NM. In 2012 my work appeared in the Russian poetry journal “Fracture Mania”, Moscow, Russia. View my work at and
