Destructive Pop Strategic Functionalism

Continuing the processes exercised in previous work, I often create site-specific installations that combine constructed painterly forms and objects applied to the dynamics of the space provided.

The forms and objects derive from re-constructed interpretations of architectural configurations and Psychological domains. The installation aims to produce a psycho-geographical space animating the phenomenological dialect that is established between mind and matter that is niether real or imaginary.

Furthermore, the installation is an extended exploration of the history of geometrical form through the discourse and practice of painting. In these projects the paintings are neither two nor three-dimensional, but rather, are an interlacing and mutation of both; a strategy that aims to confuse and re-articulate the aesthetic and conceptual definitions of geometric abstraction, cubism, Da-Da and minimalism.

Individually these styles and practices have competing definitions and value systems, but are all defined through a linear narrative of painting. My work is therefore a cross channeling of several disciplines and aesthetics, further re-defining art and architecture as multiplex objects of utility.
