My practice is in the event of seeing. I construct optical field paintings with repetitive processes that imply movement where there is none, engaging a physical and sometimes sonic viewing experience. Unlike the op artists of the sixties, my paintings are rife with error, suggesting rather than denying the human hand. Utilizing the ancient technology of painting, I reflect on the addictive visual technologies we rely on today. These technologies, conceived right here in Silicon Valley, prey upon bio-psychological weakness generating non consensual engagement with socially harmful consequences.
