My work embraces
the simulated world, focusing attention on the interchange – ability
of real and imaginary, actual and virtual. My work studies the relationship
between spatial dimensions and perception in conjunction with art. I have
a fascination with scientific theories that try to grasp an understanding
of the universe. I have learnt to identify key spatial relationships within
architecture, by photographing various architectural structures and observing
architectural space. Depth, volume, mass and perspective are some of the
important spatial aspects I look for in architecture. The spatial relationship
is used as a platform to develop initial ideas into final work. The general
purpose of the architecture is to create a composition for the spectator’s
eye to travel around.
I have an interest in some of the most recent of theoretical based Physics. That being, the study of string theory and M theory. This series is a visual representation of the possibilities of higher dimensional space. I find it very intriguing that many people perceive reality as a restricted zone that only allows 1/3 of the actual mass of our universe. If Scientists have calculated that we can only see 1/3 of the mass in our universe, then logically it would seem there are other spatial connections out-side our reach. String theory states that the rest of the mass in our universe is very small and curled up as higher dimensional space. My paintings in this series are trying to depict a reality which represents more than three dimensions of space. Recently, I have been interested in M theory which describes our universe as floating inside higher dimensional space. It suggests that our universe is a large solid object called a membrane. The theory states it may be possible for other universes to exist inside this higher dimensional space. One speculation of this idea is that if there are a number of universes floating around in higher dimensional space. So what is stopping them from colliding with one another? A recent painting, `Multiverse` Feb 2005, is depicting the precise moment where two universes have collided. I have visualised that moment as being two universes as one. The painting represents both realities combining together to create a multiverse, hence the title.
AND PARALLEL UNIVERSES 2004
ever made a decision in life where you used your instincts and went in
the direction you thought was best? Thinking back later, you then wonder
what would life be like if you had chose the other path. I had to make
the decision to do art or graphic design at University? I chose art because
it is my true passion, but I now realise that if I had chose graphics,
I would almost certainly have a well paid job by now.
