"I attempt to breach the veil between screen and physical world by extracting digital designs into physical objects. In Facades I & II (2016) the steel figures were produced through industrial processes with a mechanical plasma cutter and break press. The hands-off production resonates themes of non-natural or anti-gestural reflecting in the oversimplification and digital stylization of the human figures. Portrait Landscape (2015-17) began as a digital preliminary and was then converted into a hand-labored oil painting. The preliminaries required limited time to produce and possessed perfectly aligned forms generated from the computer, whereas the hand-painted reproduction was labored containing many slight errors by a wavering hand. Through this hand-labored extraction process, I antagonize the relation between man and screen.  I imitate functions of the machine when I choose to hand paint. The reason I produce by hand these works balance between redundancy, humility of my own imperfections, and arrogance of needing to be as capable as the machine."

People's Flag of Milwaukee (04.06.16)

Flying high about this design for the People's Flag of Milwaukee competition. Simply, this design illustrates Milwaukee's connection to Lake Michigan represented by a sunrise over land and water. Using geometric fields of ultramarine light, amber, and aquamarine I finally selected the right colors and shapes after 3 years of referring to this subject. Please check out the People's Flag of Milwaukee Project to learn more www.milwaukeeflag.com or MKE Flag to view more designs.
