My work explores parallel dimensions using procedural computer graphics and fractal geometry, opening up gateways to unseen, infinite worlds of majestic and mysterious beauty and complexity. Navigating these worlds, I bring back documentation of my journeys into the unknown across several mediums — digital images, high resolution prints, light boxes, video, NFTs, AR and Virtual Reality.
Striking a fine-tuned balance of shapes, light, shadows, color and detail, I strive to create a meditative state, similar to what you can find when experiencing the beauty and vastness of nature — when viewing a mountain range, a forest, or the ocean. I create my art to share a sense of wonder, enable people to see the world in a new light, and find a deeper awareness of the many unseen layers of what we choose to call reality.
In the words of William Blake:
To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.
