Singularity, oil on canvas, 18 x 20 inches, 2014-15

Here’s the recently completed work mentioned in my last blog post. Mankind’s increasingly intimate yet perilous relationship with technology and machines is the idea I’m working with here, and would like to explore further…

Realized with influence from creative sources such as

  • Ray Kurzweil
  • Michel Foucault (“biopower”)
  • Neill Blomkamp
  • Guy DeBord
  • H.R. Giger
  • Terminator © franchise
  • Metal and Industrial music
  • Postmodern alienation
  • Medical-industrial complex

 

That’s all for now, but more soon!
