Chagrin Falls Art Gallery

As an artist I refer to my work as the "meaningless randomness of beauty"; It is the goal I set for myself – to create an object of beauty, yet my creative process is founded on meaninglessness and randomness. I write computer code to design visual compositions and configure various elements such as color and complexity, yet within those constraints I allow the computer to dance its random dance. This is the kernel of my artistic process: The tension between human intention and random variation, will and luck, meaning and chaos. In a sense the computer is like a wide-eyed child uninhibited by meaningful intentions. It "listens" to the vast array of choices and instructions I give it and delivers a random assemblage of aesthetic phenomena toward my goal. My compositions draw from my studies in philosophy, art and evolution as well as my love of the natural beauty of light.
