About Membrane Art

‘I’m re-imagining our universe — entangled in the void of spacetime.’

My curved canvases become a way to initiate events that consumes the surface geometry, creating distinct expressions and reciprocal marks that cannot be achieved on the flat picture plane, yet the results of the work are always presented in that form — a metaphor for how we may observe.

As the curved surfaces create the structural basis for the expressions, it also means that the pieces themselves have been developed and composed partly and sometimes completely out of plain sight. In the end, you never truly know what you’re going to be looking at until you unravel and reveal it. This shows that the markings have come from somewhere else, where expression and sculpture unite, a complete approach to ‘mark making’ that may be considered neither painting nor sculpture. My term for it is Membrane Art, as it is the membrane surface that creates the basic structure for each piece.

Since 2004, I’ve been evolving this aesthetic thought. A style of abstraction that is deeply rooted in the present context of a multi-dimensional universe and the way nature itself could be.

This website aims to share my discovery of this.
