Artworks





“Loose Cognition of Time #5”

"Loose Cognition of Time #5". This work is based in a process-theory bound mode of understanding, witnessing the juxtaposition of time as a duality. In my process, I witness time as a conventional idea based on precognition. The past is non-existent. The past does not exist and likewise the present does not exist because as soon as you experience it, it is then gone. The present isn’t always slipping away, its infinite minuteness can’t ever actually be observed. While it appears that I am making decisions as I put marks onto the canvas, I am instead precognizing each process, the mark only now existing as part of the perpetual re-exam... [More]

“Breath of Causality”

"Breath of Causality". The slow formation of composition comes from the probable effect arising from past conditions. Everything is cause and effect, every mark leads to the next, effected by the previous mark. This abstraction process creates an unadulterated artifact of perception of mind in process, witnessing that there is no "free will" only entropy.
