I am an artist who collaborates with scientists and environmentalists to find solutions to issues of sustainability. Here you will find posts about ongoing research projects.
The main focus of my research currently is working with a team of engineers and watershed experts to remediate streams polluted by acid mine drainage from abandoned coal mines.
Art is the mechanism through which I explore the fundamental metaphysical dilemmas we face as a conscious species. No medium or mode is unconsidered when attacking this pursuit. I look for idiosyncratic connections between things, the compression of time and distance, the glory of our universe, and natural and cosmological processes. A catalytic visual collation that generates a paradox revealing the fragile connection between technology, nature and man. An activist and environmentalist, my paintings, drawings and collaborative installations are produced in an eco-conscious manner, and I continually work toward a fully sustainable practice.
I incorporate ever more sustainable practices in my studio, in my life, and when possible actively engaging the public on the matter. Here you will find exhibits, talks, workshops and press.
After years of refinements we have recently found success. I have developed a relationship with Gamblin Artists Colors who have agreed to produce a batch of 500 tubes of oil paint using our pigment. These paints will be distributed to artists around the world and the resulting artworks curated into a touring exhibition highlighting our efforts and generating broader discourse on developing more sustainable art practices.
