Chromatic Fantasy: a complement of color

When I was 16 the first musical composition I every penned was a Fantaisie Chromatique. I had been attempting to play one by J. S. Bach and I was fascinated by the half tone runs, that with performance velocity, almost a glissando effect could be achieved, a blending of the most proximate of notes struck on the piano. With, Chromatic Fantasy; a complement of color, the frequency of tone has been supplanted by the frequency of color and light. I have been interested for some years in works that are visually kinetic, the perception of reality, of experience, and the transformation of accessible media. In the proximity of small pieces of colored paper placed adjacent to one another the viewer perceives colors that only exist in his or her own reality. While moving past in physical space, my Chromatic Interference and Puzzled series, become mutable and colors and tones are distinguished, emphasizing the their lack of stasis. They exist multi-dimensionally transmuting in time and space in an ever changing environment of movement and light. All of these pieces present the distal edges of various media, primarily paper and paper products, puzzle pieces, found cardboard, and the foiled boxes in which my toothpaste comes. The Chromatic Resonance series projects liminal colors denying their consistency along the pitch of angular boundaries creating color frequencies that shift, strobe and resonate, reminiscent of current patterns viewed on an oscilloscope. In their making I have taken up the mantle of scale and site. Similar in nature and construction these pieces exist in varied sizes from feet, to inches, to fractions of inches. Much of my practice encompasses the placement of works on the body. As my concerns are of kinetics and experience these works can be encountered in symbiosis between site and observation.
