No matter how you cut them, flowers are a pure representation of beauty and color with their unexpected twisting of petals and leaves. Much of my work fragments the flowers further- presenting them in an organized jumble of flowing and surreal colors.
Trans-historical art is the blending of the new and the old. It is a way of reliving the history of art and keeping it topical and contemporary.
I have always loved Renaissance art which marks the transition of Europe from the medieval period to the early Modern age. Similarly, for me, Glitch marks a transition of modern art to the technological age. I want to bring a new appreciation to these masterpieces by re-inventing and re-mixing them as a tribute to these extraordinary Old Masters.
TIME FLOW PHOTOGRAPHY
Blurr photography creates abstract expressionist images with the depth and quality of traditional painters but with light as the medium- showing us multiple moments in time.
Rejecting the notion that valid photography must be sharp and realistic- at times- blur is exactly what our sharp obsessed brain needs. Deliberate artistic blurred images or images that show motion or streaks of light are as valid a photographic statement as traditional photography.
“Time-Flow Photography has the ability to record time as well as space and to make visual our space-time existence. “

This series is called “Storefronts” which is both a celebration and a critique of consumerism. Each of these works are glitched representations of various luxury goods storefronts. In this series I celebrate the artists that create spectacular storefront displays, as well as our economic freedom to purchase these beautiful objects. Yet I question hyper-consumerism. A lifestyle of leisure and consumption is constantly promoted and our society is organized around the necessity for ever-increasing rates of personal consumption. Brands have became an integral part of one’s identity. These beautiful displays lure us into shops - encouraging us to buy things we typically don’t need. A walk down Fifth avenue is a walk through a museum with mesmerizing displays.
This series explores my fascination with lines and stripes expressed in gradients of colors. For me lines represent progressions of thoughts, feelings, perceptions and insights throughout my own life experiences.
Sometimes lines act like an intent trail; revealing every stage, every hesitation, from the beginning of an action to its’ conclusion. Some line paintings are joyful, others ominous, and others evoke a range of moods elicited by the unpredictable pairings of colors.
I like to think there is an element of movement in this series - when viewed from different perspectives, the image modulates and elicits a visual effect that seems to dance and hum.
This series explores powerful women and divas of our time.
BENEATH THE CODE
We are technology depended and addicted. We shop, socialize, search online, leaving digital breadcrumbs of our activities. Ever increasingly intelligent machine systems track, analyze, aggregate our behaviors aiming to facilitate, sell, enrich, entertain us. Artificial Intelligence is here to stay, and we are making it smarter by the day. It’s a new frontier with many ethical questions. Today humans are on top of the food chain due to our intelligence, not our strength. What happens when we are no longer the most intelligent creatures on earth?
This series explores digitization, machine accelerated learning and our inevitable integration with technology.
PINKS & PURPLES
When I look at an animal, I am always enchanted. I am fascinated by the way they look and communicate with us, how they move, the texture of their fur and skin, and their eyes. This series explores some of my favorite animals in hypercolor.
