Thinking about free radicals in the human body, the large red wave suggests the life blood coursing through our veins. My painting seeks to explore the matter and energy that make up form. The energy is defined through shapes, patterns and the space they inhabit. Sensitive to the stunning urban origami of my urban surrounds in Chicago, the geometric patterns in the work have become, at once metaphors for both science particles and the architectural spaces we create and inhabit. The scintillating patterns of the waters of the Chicago river reflected in the geometric, glass high-rise building never fail to resonate so deeply, I get goose-bumps as I sense the esoteric connection between all things.
