Solo Exhibition Photos + New Projects

I'm happy to report that my solo exhibition, "Circuit Topology", had a great opening and run at Camiba Art Gallery!  I had a healthy turnout and even made a few sales!  Now that it has concluded, I'd like to post some photos from the opening night:

So, I have a few new project ideas!  First, I have an update on "Topolograph":


"Topolograph" composition


Acetone transfer complete!



The real drawing begins... sensitivity, nuance, the Force.

Second, I'm planning a more politically-driven series based on Ambrogio Lorenzetti's "Allegory of Good and Bad Government".  I am composing the work as a large triptych that will interpret Lorenzetti's dramatic 14th Century governmental scenes using symbolic geometry and linear perspective.  My inspiration comes from the need to visualize the structure of contemporary American government and draw parallels between Sienese history and neo-fascism.  Lastly, I am also working on a sister series called "Checks and Balances".  It will also visualize governmental structure, but with a focus on the tension between the three branches - more details soon... In the meantime, here are a few ideation notes and sketches for my "Allegory":





Good Government (prototype)


Equality, Justice, Temporal Power


Perspectival ideas


"...Citizens acting in 'accord[ance] with the temporal and astral force that governs' them."


Good Government


Bad Government (aka trump)
