Collection 5 Inside Looking Out
 

A series of paintings resulting from the accumulation of literally millions of tiny bits of color. Monotonous and ambivalent fields of grey from afar, closer inspection reveals more variation and depth as the surface breaks down into thousands of compositions, one nested inside another. The works attempt to cope with apprehensions about things exponentially proliferating in the world. As in life, amid the cacophony, they struggle to find—between rational and organic; signal and noise; order and chaos—balance.
