"In my latest body of work it’s all about perception, how each individual perceives things differently, how things can change and looked at from a different angle or point of view, examining the effects and influence mass media has on our modern society and how it determines what we think and changes our perception of the world around us.
Constantly bombarded with messages from a multitude of sources including, TV, Billboards, magazine and social media to name a few not only promoting products but also determining our behaviors, needs, what is and what is not important to know, concealing the truth and manipulating the masses. Like magicians shifting our focus and our attention to what they want us see or perceive while the real magic or rather the deception is actually happening elsewhere in front of your eyes.
With these works I try to show how different things can look from a different angle or by changing ones perspective.
By de-fragmenting an image in to as little information the human eye needs to recognize and process the information I end up with an abstract color pallet of pixels, color pixels that I then re-fragment again with as much information possible by incorporating thousands of photographic images in resin spheres selected and separated by theme and color, that together form the larger image “The big picture” if you like. Resulting in these three dimensional, multi leveled works that depending on your distance, angle or ones idealized perception determine what the eye of the beholder is looking at."
