From Osage Arts Community

2015-2017

RIVERS and BEASTS assembles 61 paintings completed during a roughly 30 month artists residency at Osage Arts Community, an arts retreat on a 154 acre farm situated along the bank of the Gasconade River near Belle, Missouri. The works presented here describe a subtle, but significant shift in the artist’s studio practice. His earlier works, known for their use of generative systems, often employed thousands of “bits” of information to produce a single image. The works collected here, although still concerned with systems, pattern and coding, chronicle an artist striving to engage more rapidly and freely with a widening array of visual strategies, producing imagery which appears at once familiar yet unexpected.
