I create abstract digital prints using algorithmic processes. My work is generated with custom software written in the programming language Processing. Compositional variables related to size, quantity, color, placement, and grid density are randomly determined within specified ranges. The resulting output is then organized into related groups and produced as digital c-prints. My art explores geometric structure and color arrangement through computation and iteration.
My work has been exhibited at venues throughout the U.S. including Arizona State University, Lawrence University, the University of Minnesota, the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art, the Center for Contemporary Art in Sacramento, and the Tucson Museum of Art.
I serve as Program Director for Art Foundations at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division, where I lead faculty and curriculum development. In 2012, I wrote Foundations of Design (http://amzn.com/1111343616), an introductory textbook for art and design students. I received my B.A. in Mathematics and Studio Art from Lawrence University, and my M.F.A. in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I currently live in Tempe, Arizona with my wife and two children.…Read More
