Resume / Bio / Statement
I explore the similarities between cosmology and Eastern philosophy, as well as the intersection of art and science. Theories of quantum entanglement, black holes, and the multiplicities of scale are what stimulate my creative being in this series. As a trained concert pianist, I see the transposing of chords and repetitions in a similar way to variations of color and shape throughout my paintings.
I am in awe of the mystery and beauty of the creative energy that permeates everything in the cosmos. As Albert Einstein said, “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.” My exploration of the fabric of the universe, its ever-changing patterns, give rise to and parallels my own creative development. I conceive my art as a spiritual, psychological, and philosophical journey.
