    Description

    Throughout time, there has been individuality. Throughout time, there have been individuals that stand out among the crowd for their ideas, for their actions, for their achievements… Yet, over time, the memorized image of these individuals begins to fade. My abstracted portrait series, entitled, “Fading Identities” is a homage to these individuals and reminds people that the general characteristics of a person is all you need to remember their identity and what they stood for. From one angle it might look like they are a faded mess. While gazing at the subject from different angles, they look clear as day, yet, they are still the same un-changing individual. This is the basis of memories, and that is what this series is an homage to that.

    Entropy

    This painting is so fascinating and really does illustrate the concept of entropy from high energy to an final stage of existence. I think of elements like life forms and atomic particles spiraling into rest and final dissolution. But what mysterious force energized elements into life in the first place? I know the easy answer, but what about the difficult one?

    Interstellar DNA

    I love this painting because of the ideas it inspires. It is always mind blowing how the ultimate macrocosm embodies the microcosm, as well as the tiniest building blocks where laws of physics defy intuitive expectations. Things we think of as non living are shockingly intertwined with what we call living and the beginnings -- and ends -- of all elements in the universe are the same. There was a discovery reported on the other day about a very strong non-regular deep space burst. In the past these were resolved to be pulsars, quasars, etc, but this one is unknown. This painting makes me wonder about all these amazing things.

    This is so beautiful, everything about it is perfect. If a painting stays with me after I've viewed it is great in my view and this certainly does that, one of the best in July for sure.

    You can definitely see the dappled sunlight effect on the rocks. The use of soft and hard edges and loose brushstrokes defines the objects and lets to viewer mentally fill in the detail.
