Conceptual Works

A conceptually-driven series of personal work. This body of digitally composed "paintings" came together as somewhat of a melding of my personal painting practice and my commercial illustration processes.

This is an ongoing series I'm using to explore the possibility of employing an illustrative approach to deal with abstract concepts.

The resulting images are like cerebral road maps recording landmarks and stepping stones along the search for a greater understanding. They’re not answers or conclusions but a catalogue of findings en route to a potentially unattainable cognitive destination.

These pieces act as an alternate fabricated reality into which I can pull these concepts from the cognitive space and place them somewhere so that I may examine them more clearly.
