here and here
The idea or scientific concept of sub-atomic particles and the fluidity of matter is an interesting one; the notion that things are not as solid as they seem. I think about this when I paint my water paintings; the fluidity of water, the human body coming together and mixing - like the colors and tones mixing on the canvas to make an image.
This integration is also present in my other paintings; the integration of man and technology. Most interesting is the symbiosis of man and flying machine. Particularly the idea of a man climbing into this machine, made by other men, becoming one with it and flying through the fluid atmosphere even beyond into the void of space. In one subject, I’m interested in man’s emersion in nature and in another the integration of man and machine.
