vibrata chromodoris


I'm passionate about digital design, but material craftsmanship is important to me, too. These pieces marry traditional painting with an interesting method of transferring a laser-printed paper image onto a wood panel using acrylic medium. The precise digital lines seem to hover over the materiality of the hand-painted background...distinct, but complementary. The graphic linearity gives the pieces a pop or op quality, but with geometric rigor.

Symmetrical biomorphic shapes appeared in the work some years ago, and they reminded me of mouths or vibrating vocal cords, so I called them "words". Viewers have often said they remind them of an alien alphabet. I've since connected this to an artistic movement called "asemic writing", referring to abstract imagery that resembles written language but doesn't have any specific meaning.
