ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

I worked with a quantum physicist on a project about trying to look at things logically and emotionally at the same time, and the quest to find ultimate intelligence with the elusive Theory of Everything.

Additional Information series began when I became interested in the gulf that exists between logical thinking and emotional understanding. My interest in figurative painting stems from its non-objective process: the decisions the artist makes in representing the subject effect how it is viewed. My interest in mathematics stems from its objective process: mathematics strives to explain using universal terminology. My interest in combining mathematics and art comes from the idea that mathematical language can explain the formal aspect of a subject, the same aspect that painting interprets as beauty. These paintings are based on conversations I shared about the relationship between traditional figurative painting, human behavior and mathematics.
