October 2017Featured Artist
Twenty-four years ago I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus. After 2 years of chemotherapy, I was able to get back to a somewhat normal life. During that time I have been trying to decipher my life through art which was one of the things that saved my life.
For my latest body of work, I had become fascinated with the photogram. In my research, artists such as Adam Fuss, Susan Derges and especially Marco Breuer are doing work that I admire. I am also enthralled by photos taken of space by the Hubble Telescope. I became intrigued by the possibilities of this photographic process and how I could create my fictional galaxies.
My light sources of choice are fireworks of varying persuasions, combined with other materials. Interestingly, the images (Which were few and far between), the pieces, with all their beautiful imperfections resembled images of the real solar-system, created by the first Big Bang millions of years ago. In my continuous pursuit of the meaning of my life through my art.
My life like my art is chaotic and it is this that brings meaning into my Chaos Theory series.
