ARTIST STATEMENT

I am an artist and designer working at the intersections of computer code and drawing. My creations bridge the gap between analog and digital worlds, tradition and modernity and the handmade with digital design.

The widespread adoption of the Internet has transformed world industries – art is no exception. With the exponential rise of technology we have witness creativity crossing at ever increasing speeds between industry and culture, private and public, analogue and digital, and everything in-between. Technology provides a new area for innovators and artists to experiment and develop new modes of creative expression.

As such, I am a resultant of a new type of artist – an artist of the Digital Age. The computer is an artistic tool, just like a paintbrush. Having developed my own computer program I integrate random algorithms into my work, generating dense graphic compositions that are each woven into a kind of ‘multiverse’ that is at once chaotic and orderly, dynamic and serene. My ability to find the balance between these extremes is the basis of my distinctive style.

I believe my body of work speaks to our contemporary digital society. I want to emphasize that my creations go beyond art making; it is a way of life. I find inspiration by diving head first into the unknown and the undiscovered corners. It is in those obscured places where I creatively flourish.
