STATEMENT:

AS A VISUAL LEARNER I GRAVITATE TO THE ACTUAL CREATION OF IMAGES AS A WAY TO HUMOR A BRAIN HARD WIRED TO DOWNLOAD AND RETRIEVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PICTURES.  THIS JOURNEY HAS IRONICALLY LED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A BODY OF WORK THAT LOOKS NOT AT THE EMPIRICAL WORLD AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES, EARS, AND SENSES.  INSTEAD, THE OEUVRE IS A MANIFESTATION OF AN UNSEEN WORLD, A SUB PARTICLE WORLD;  A WORLD THAT INHABITS THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SPACES.  THE PAINTINGS ARE CREATED OVER TIME AND THROUGH THE USE OF MANY LAYERS THAT EVENTUALLY WEAVE TOGETHER TO BUILD UP WHAT ONE WOULD SEE IN THE MINUTIAE OF THE MICRO-NANO UNIVERSE.  THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PICTURE IS ALWAYS THE EXPRESSION OF AN IMPULSE, A FORCE OF AND FROM NATURE.  A FUSION OF NATURAL LAW AND SPONTANEOUS ENERGY COMMUNICATED THROUGH PAINT.

KANDINSKY, HOFMANN, MIRO, FRANCIS, POLLOCK, KLEE.  THESE ARTIST INFORM MY WORK.  I TAKE THEIR MASTERFUL INFLUENCE AND MARINATE IT INTO MY OWN PERSONAL STYLE OF ABSTRACTION.  BASED ON THE SUB ATOMIC PARTICLE NUCLEAR INVISIBLE WORLD OF SPACE-TIME, DARK MATTER, AND ENERGY, I CHANNEL THE LIFE-FORCE OF THE GREATER UNIVERSE INTO EVERY BRUSH STROKE TO CREATE A HARMONIOUS LIVING MICROCOSM THAT TAKES THE VIEWER TO A DIFFERENT STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS.  STANDING IN FRONT OF A MONDU WATERCOLOR PAINTING WILL ULTIMATELY AND INEVITABLY TRANSPORT THE VIEWER TO ANOTHER DIMENSION.  MOVE CLOSER, MOVE BACK, ZOOM IN ZOOM OUT. THE PAINTING WILL PLAY TRICKS ON YOUR SENSES.  YOU WILL HAVE NO RECOURSE OR ABILITY TO CONTROL YOUR MIND.  AT ONCE BOTH DIZZYING AND CALMING, A MONDU PICTURE REFLECTS THE DIALECTICAL TENSION BETWEEN A WAVE AND A PARTICLE. BETWEEN A MOMENT AND ETERNITY, BETWEEN SUPERSYMETRY AND ABJECT CHAOS.
