Through a Glass, Darkly
In a nod to the multiverse, this painting works with multi-dimensional spaces, and poses many questions about the supposed reality in which we see ourselves to exist. As you observe the painting, the question becomes: Are you the observer, or the observed?
Since I have become obsessed by a polyurethane which sits in a totally successful compromise between visual 2D and 3D, with no midline shift like lenticular 3D, I have found myself exploring my own perceptions of my existence, in increasingly adventurous ways. I can’t see an end in sight. Pattern has played an increasing role as a metaphor for the importance of surface to our understanding of concrete form. From primitive times we have embellished, with relish, objects and even people and animals around us, to augment our sense of ownership of the space surrounding us.
