Timeline

(an art blog)

A true artist is always thinking, learning, and creating – but a majority of that work never surfaces. Timeline is a blog about my ongoing practice as an artist. Unlike most other blogs, I designed this one to allow me to post to the present or into the past. The idea of digging up old ideas, memories and experiences at the same time as creating new ones feels like a good way to progress and evolve as an artist… Use the navigation to the right to explore. Enjoy.

The Architect

I wanted to make a photograph about architecture, but in a way one would not expect. I suddenly got the idea of a person within a floating cube. Man seems to make everything in squares and right angles… I decided to construct a three dimensional cube in my studio out of yarn. I made a white cube then tied black yarn from each corner to the ceiling and floor, stretching it into shape. I then stood inside.

On The Tree

Myself and a small group of photographers are making themed projects for the following year as a creative challenge. I was given the theme “On The Tree” and thought, perhaps nothing physical had to be on the tree, but rather someone’s attention. This is the self portrait I created.

Photograph & Color Field

I have been exploring the idea of creating photographs that suddenly stretch out into a minimal field of view, therefore creating one piece that speaks of both vision and abstract. The image is clearly based in photography, giving just a hint of reality, however it begins to subtract all form and focus on the color palette that makes up the whole of the scene. It reminds me of something like a Bridget Riley op art or a Mark Rothko color field painting, and so I see the final product working better as a larger print.

Cloudy Supermoon

The supermoon this month is the closest the moon has been to the earth since 1948, well before I existed. I traveled out to photograph the rise, but the sky was covered in clouds. I actually prefer this, because how many perfectly focused exposures of the moon do we really need? This way I got a little something different.

A Better Election Sign

The worst part of election season: Yard Signs. Once again, however, I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon but in my own special way. I grabbed an old election sign and spray-painted the word “LOVE” onto it. I like to think this is the only yard sign everyone needs.

Pumpkin Photo Frame

When carving a pumpkin I always strive to do something a little different. This time I carved a white pumpkin that holds a 4×5 negative of tree limbs. When you put a candle inside it is beautifully back-lit… I guess this is how a photographer celebrates Halloween.

Riding A Train

I rode an old 1950’s diesel locomotive today. This was my first train ride ever. My favorite part was staring into the abyss that was just a horizontal blur of colored fall leafs. Hypnotizing. Memorizing… I opened the window, slowed my shutter, and made an attempt to capture the moment through my camera.

Triangular Monolith

This is a digital sketch of a concept. I had the idea to build a giant triangle using wood and black cloth. I would then drive to different locations and photograph it within a landscape. The shape seems gigantic, momentous and yet empty at the same time, as if it’s not even part of the image, but a hole right through it.

Laser Cymatics

I filled a container with water, aimed a laser at the surface so that it refracted onto the wall. I then played a very low frequency through a vibration speaker that created patterns on the surface of the water: Cymatics… What you see here is the reflection of moving light patterns on the wall, a combination of 3 different frequencies blended together. This is a new installation I am working towards.

I came across this beautiful sight, and made a picture. Proving once again, nothing is more complex and psychedelic than the little things, the things that mostly go unseen, created by her, mother nature.
