My painting practice draws heavily from contemporary theory in mathematics and physics as a lens through which to understand the natural world. In particular, the simplicity of prime numbers and the Fibonacci sequence's connection with the golden ratio have informed my most recent work. Contemporary theory in these fields demonstrate how these strangely beautiful numbers help further the human understanding of the space in which we live. The relationship between numbers and nature have inspired artist throughout history. Most notably, the application of mathematical laws gave shape to work of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) and Jackson Pollock (1912-1956). In Japan, Hokusai Katsushika (1760-1849) carried out such applications to the highest level. In my work, painting is a manipulation of space to create an illusion. These illusions serve as a means to share a new and primal visual experience that expand upon nature's unpredictable patterns and systems.
