Microcosm (Little Corner of the World)

The Microcosm(Little Corner of the World) series (1999-present) is the foundational series of my science-based work.  This was the beginning of my process-based investigations on the borders of abstraction and figuration.  Using chance-based processes of applying paint, I accentuated the outlines of resulting forms in a way that referenced organic forms at an indeterminate scale.  The resulting paintings, often playfully titled, depicted liminal landscapes floating between the animal and the vegetable, with an apparent scale reaching from the body to the cellular.
