MYTHOS FLUX means instability or uncertainty around belief systems or narratives. The "flux" suggests a lack of fixed or stable meaning, while the "mythos" implies a system of belief or understanding. The title suggests an exploration of the changing or uncertain nature of belief and mythology. This exhibit is based on collages generated via Midjouney Ai which are then brought into the studio to be made physical using a combination of ink, beeswax and oil paint. The works are depictions of what the future of Ai might have looked like to science fiction enthusiasts of the 1930's. Each image features a woman who exists in transformative state as she integrates with camera lenses, bird parts, disembodied eyeballs and collaged paper. The beeswax provides thick, atmospheric textures that, layered with oil paint feels like the wind and weather of strange planets. The Mythos Flux Exhibition was open from May 18th - August 15, 2023 at Monument Sotheby's International Real Estate Gallery in Baltimore, MD. View and purchase the paintings here.
ARCANA OBSCURA is an investigation into the concealed or enigmatic nature of perception. "Arcana" suggests hidden knowledge, while "obscura" alludes to something obscure or veiled. The title invites viewers to explore mysterious symbolism and delve into the mysteries of personal interpretation. The works extend the Ai-inspired worlds of Mythos Flux, exploring collage-based compositions that feature a host of female characters who appear to shape-shift between arcane imagery, camera parts, eyeballs and colored papers. Arcana Obscura was open from July 15th - October 7th, 2023 at Gallery Blue Door in Baltimore, MD. View the body or work here.
