Heliotrope

Heliotrope no 01 © 2016
Heliotrope continues the glitch based deconstruction of archival photos taken in the late 90's-early 2000s. The images were shot with low res early digital cameras and are being manipulated through a variety of apps, and processes before final printing. It's a dialog between the artist I once was and the one I have become.

Broken Bits

 Broken Bits series is inspired by the late 80's early 90's childhood and teenage years- specifically the glitches seen in Nintendo NES games. Combined with that other adolescent obsession like late nights, contraband porn, and horror movies the aesthetic is a scrambled nightmare of have concealed pixels based on source material form my archives.

Boarding School - Automatic Hiawatha



As if I haven't been busy enough between producing theatre and my art career I'm actually hard at work in my fleeting off time on a new Boarding School record tentatively titled Automatic Hiawatha. It'll be out sometime before the end of 2016 but I decided to drop a teaser of a few tracks (still in demo form) in the meantime.
Enjoy. 

Viridescent [NSFW]

Viridescent no. 01 ©2016




New series Viridescent sort of spontaneously birthed itself out of the Digital Debris practice. More4 focused on impressionisti, painterly manipulated portatuer than the repatitive pop art style of debris' fractured glitches.  It's yet another exploration of the way technology interfaces with expression.  Memory has always been best represented as a disolve to me, an inkblot bleeding at the edges of perception and conciousness.  A little nightmarish, a little sexy, a queasy green feeling of fear and envy.

Digital Debris 2016

This collection of recent works from my on-going Digital Debris series are an exploration of new technologies, Pop Art call backs, and embracing glitch, and data bending applications as a form of art making.  They serve as 21st Century process paintings; crunching low rez archival works, HD selfies and video stills into technicolor Rorschach tests.
