About These works

About These works

For my paintings, I strive to achieve the geometric logic of science with the colourful, freedom of whimsy. My partner is an accountant by training and owns his own investment firm and I am traditionally-trained in fine art and colour theory. We are polar opposites, as far as our career and education, but we share a passion for creativity and appreciate thoughtful execution.  We came across a photograph of the speed of light while looking for numbers on the laws of physics. Being both aesthetically pleasing as well as science specific, “Light” soon took physical form on canvas. In contrast to Light No.1 and No.2 which are paintings that resemble the first initial reaction the eye has to light, I painted Abyss which is the vanishing point of which the eye no longer sees light.


The painting 'In" represents Global Wealth as of 2015. The numerical  figure for “in” is 75,621,858,232,788. The second painting 'Out' represents Global Debt as of 2015. The numerical figure for “out” is 201,198,250,325,888.

understanding these works

My latest body of work entitled True North is currently being featured in the atrium and lobby at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel.
True North is comprised of five abstract paintings that have been inspired by abacus computations.
Paintings No.1 and No. 2 depict the geographical coordinates of Vancouver, (49 degrees North by 123 degrees West)
Painting No.3 represents the year in which the installation was created (2015), painting No.4 represents the annual number of landings and takeoffs at Vancouver International Airport (312,228) and painting No.5 represents the total amount of humans on Earth as of May 21, 2015.

About These works

The two inch line in the center is a clean separation as to how to read the column. There are three slots and only two spheres above this line, and each sphere can be counted as “5”. If both spheres are raised, the number is “0” for that column ,
The bottom half of the separation can be explained as follows: there are five slots but only four spheres. Each of the spheres represent “1”. All four spheres pushed up would represent “4” or if only two are pushed up, this will represent the number “2”.
One must take into account the top and bottom to arrive at the correct figure for the column.
The abacus final number is read from right to left and follows traditional math placement theory…and is as follows, “ones”, “tens”, “hundreds”, “thousands” and so forth.

About These works

When painting Cotton Candy I was not concerned about the final result as much as the process of this painting. I rejected the perception of ‘pretty’ and turned a blind eye on colour theory and painted for rich colour and the dissimilarity of the colours. My objective was to create a piece of fine art without it being too “precious”. I painted Squamish in juxtaposition to Cotton Candy in that I wanted it to look more meditated and precise. My painting Squamish represents the GPS coordinates of my childhood neighbourhood.   Cotton Candy now resides in the Pediatric wing of The BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.

 Universal symbols such as currency or mathematical symbols have always interested me. Written or typed patterns that represent the same meaning across all countries are an important form of communication. The uppercase Delta Δ is the international, mathematical symbol for change or difference in a certain quantity which resembles a triangle. For example when you see Δy in an mathematical equation it is universally known as change in y or how much y changes. My art practice is continuously changing and the end results all vary. The hexagon is also filled with symbolic meaning. Community is the most universal meaning of the hexagon symbol mostly for its resemblance to a honeycomb. The hexagon also represents communication, balance and union in many countries.
