ABOUT

A note about paintings that are numbered: 

 

Usually I do not paint to a pre-determined name nor, after completing a piece do I create a name that represents the finished art.  Some of the art is numbered, but not sequentially.  My approach is to choose a dominant color in the painting and assign a name combining that color with the approximate wavelength of the color in nanometers.  This is one way that I combine my background in physics with my work in art. 

Another way to connect physics and art is to include important formulas such as Maxwell's equations or Dirac's equation.  These will appear as small details and are only visible on close examination.

A recent trip to Morroco acquainted me with the Berber language, and several paintings include Berber words that are in some way connected to the painting.
