About the Artist
I’m an oil painter based in Chicago. When I’m not painting, I work, also creatively, as a programmer and designer.
Although I do several different types of paintings, the series featured on this website is called “Bubbles & Blurs”. This style combines my interest in the art of several different eras and the techniques and imagery associated with each. Early cubism is an influence, as is some of the work of the post-impressionist era, but I also admire more contemporary artists like David Hockney. My work reflects the influence of some of his own fractured-image pieces.
The main difference between the work of those artists’ work and mine, of course, is that I use either blurring or circular fragmentation to break apart the image, whereas the artists I draw inspiration from used angular fragmentation.
