And the howling radioactive winds from the wormhole drove away all but the immortal musicians, firing back at entropy with their rythmic dischords.
This is me continuing to work on entropy, broken symmetry, for some reason it never ends.
I have always felt the artists first responsibility is to make something beautiful, which will hold the viewer or listener, as long as possible. I always thought it would be good to help forget pain, looking at a beautiful thing, no matter how grotesque.
These three images are from a series of works that started in 2011 titled ‘Metropolicide:Murder Of The City’. I had been watching a great deal of news programming and documentaries online about conflict, everywhere. Flipping from one news feed to another to fact check in some way. Trying to capture the way the scene on camera shakes when a bomb hits. Its still happening, its still madness, its increasing , insidious. The shaking makes me feel ill.
These works evolved into the Order to Chaos themes.
However, they began as a more literal attempt to depict the events I was seeing them, sometimes live on television. As these next three.
At times two monitors running two or three news feeds at once, all sound muted, I tend to listen to just one song at a time, played over and over until I get sick of it and put something else on.
Broken Symmetry in progress, 59″ X 59″, acrylic on canvas.
There are a few weeks left until the delivery days for the show on February 15th, 2019.
While I have been preparing for an upcoming show.
The show is concerning the order and disorder of mental health.
My condition is bi-polar, but I prefer to say I am bi-polar.
This work is all entirely new long after the themes of the show and the work have been decided. The work keeps happening, it keeps changing too. We live in a change machine. Its the second law of thermodynamics. Entropy will always increase
Its amazing how time flies…
