ARTIST STATEMENT 

"Multidimensional Fine Art" is a 21st Century genre currently in its nascent stage, but on the verge of rapid global expansion. In March, 2004, I felt compelled to transition from the business world into the art world, ergo, I purchased $5000 worth of art supplies "on a whim" and decided that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It was a conscious intent to create something tangible, real, and formidable that became stronger and stronger, and as the months of that year passed, it had become quite clear to me that something was trying to form. The brilliant scientist and inventor of wireless electrical current, Nicola Tesla, said that everything in the universe is divided into frequency and vibration. After painting full time since 2004, the work now seems to emanate an other-worldly energy, frequency, and vibration that somehow initiates a metamorphic effect on the viewer, resulting in an evolutionary impulse so vitally needed for the transformation and healing of humanity.  
 For the Mixed Media paintings, I prefer working with heavy impasto, applying much of the paint with the palette knife with greater frequency than the brush. I then spray mineral spirits lightly onto the surface, allowing it to thin the paint after it is applied, creating an organic, more natural style of deterioration and entropy. The end result is a relic-like, grainy, and textured archaic  appearance resembling an ancient Egyptian granite carving that's been decaying for millennia. 
 If Leonardo da Vinci were alive today, certainly he would have been fascinated by the freedom and expression of Digital Art. In the "Infused Dyes Sublimated on Aluminum" works, most are painted 100% digitally using a variety of the most cutting-edge software and hardware---including the new Apple Pencil. Some are painted partially with Mixed Media, then photographed and the remainder of it is painted digitally. The image is then printed onto a transfer paper which is applied to a flat aluminum surface through sublimation. This process embeds the dyes into the metal permanently.
