Particles and Colliders
The show Resonators at 524 Gallery in Chelsea provides the first opportunity for me to present works together from two series that deal with high-energy physics. My new series Particles is an investigation into the interactions of subatomic particles inside an accelerator. It follows my Large Hadron Collider series of paintings of the machinery of the largest accelerator in the world, the LHC at CERN. The collider paintings were most recently exhibited at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. In the new series, I am attempting to depict the super-small world of high energy collisions, filled with virtual particles, quantum loops, and hadronic jets.
