I am so honored to be featured among their carefully planned, highly curated, and inspiring pages. It comes out April 1st 2016. Grab yourself a copy. You will not be dissatisfied. Preview here.
What is Number Star you ask? It is a concept of juxtaposing elements.
Number: the masses, multiplicity, structure, account, and the abundance of life.
Star: individual, light, radiation, singularity, and balls of gas suspended in space infinitely exploding into the fleeting moment.
Together they are Number Star: calculated explosions communicating through tin cans attached with strings on opposite sides of the universe. In other words, its a poetic expression of the bottom row of buttons on your telephone keypad.
The Experience is as important as the transmission of a message. A majority of my work reacts with chromadepth 3D glasses. The 3D element brings the viewer into these cartoon landscapes. Now they are more than a spectator and a part of that much more of an experience. At the same time they are becoming attuned to the color and visual depth of the work. As an artist I hope to inspire thought through experience and experience through thought.
