This work is a group of imagined past/future structures that as a whole infers the temple, or refers to ancient buildings, and implies the presence of the ancient in a colourful way. I am exploring pataphysical abstract art that plays in a space between painting and sculpture.

“Planted” these at the James Black Gallery, Vancouver on March 25, 2019, and again with another set on April 15 in Pinar del Rio, Cuba for the 13th Havana Biennial

The North View Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition featuring eight mid-career artists, deeply engaged with pattern and formal repetition in the realization of visually dynamic and structurally complex works.

Referencing a diverse range of strategies and conceptual preoccupations, works in the exhibition will variously touch upon the periodic structures of OP Art, utilitarian concerns of the Pattern and Decoration movement,cumulative processes of Systems Art, the politics of Cultural Identity, and spiritual aspects of symmetry among other concerns.
