of the Sea
What started over 15 years ago as a quest to paint the patterns observed in marine biology evolved into an ensemble of works that celebrate vibrant biological-like systems, patterns, and behaviors.
Taking an elements and systems approach similar to the architectural design process that employs membrane, enclosure, structural, mechanical, distribution and communication systems, my works take on a familiarity of forms and arrangements not yet discovered but made possible to realize.
Bio-ART-chitecture endeavors to balance familiar creature characteristics with composition and inference sewing the magic between perception and reality.
I hope to bring inspiration, wonder and possibly some meditative respite to viewers while ultimately raising awareness of the amazing creatures we have in our oceans and our responsibility to preserve them.
