~dsc03996-3-cheARTIST’S STATEMENT

“…with empirical roots in the abstract sublime, also drawing on the conceptual frameworks of the early Art & Language group, I work primarily at the intersection of pure abstraction, the industrial sublime, contemporary landscape and oil painting en plein air. Engaging non-linear aleatoric processes, trompe l’oeil, ideographic and asemic writing, and abstract conceptualization techniques, my work also echoes in certain respects the manifestos of early Twentieth-century abstract art movements, namely De Stijl and Der Blaue Reiter, the assertion that art and philosophy share the same content… my work is similarly premised on the theory that art has the potential to prompt the viewer toward intuiting, glimpsing, as much through a feeling, circumventing a priori categories of ordinary cognition, the edges of the ungraspable… to a transcendent sense of self and world.. entailing, as Schopenhauer writes, the possibility of attaining a better consciousness as “a pure subject of will-less knowing”…”
