My essay, Two Branches, One Tree, has been published in the December 2017-January 2018 issue of The Brooklyn Rail, on the Critics Page edited by Taney Roniger. This section of the Rail appears in conjunction with the symposium organized by Taney and the CUE Art Foundation called Strange Attractors: Art, Science, and the Question of Convergence, for which I served on the panel.
I was honored to join a distinguished panel for Strange Attractors, an multi-platform symposium on "art, science, and the question of convergence", organized by the CUE Art Foundation and Taney Roniger.
The opening event featured presentations by James Elkins, Elaine Reynolds, and Matthew Ritchie, and it was followed by eleven days of online discussions that examined various aspects of the sci-art phenomenon.
A transcript of the panel discussion is available here.
I am showing in Rochester, NY for the first time, in an exhibition called Eclectic Geometric at Norchar and Haus, curated by Melissa Huang. The show runs October 1 to December 1 and features work by Rebecca Aloisio, Cory O’Rourke, Amy Moore, Megan Scheffer, Drew Tetz, and myself.
Yesterday, I installed a solo exhibition at the Azarian McCullough Art Gallery in Sparkill, NY, entitled Mapmaker's Dream, which features a body of work developed over the last two years that combines landscape views of computer-generated fractals with paper folding techniques.
The show is on view September 4 - October 1, 2017, and the opening is September 13, 4:30 - 6:30 PM.
I'm very pleased to be included in the national juried exhibition, Small Works 2016, at Main Street Arts in Clifton Springs, NY. The juror is Bleu Cease, director of the Rochester Contemporary Art Center, and he selected my piece Warp and Weft II (below).
I also contributed a blog post to the Main Street Arts blog showing my process for creating sculpted prints.
I have been invited to participate in a group exhibition called You Are Here: Contemporary Mapping at Corners Gallery in Ithaca, NY. I have a deep and abiding love of maps, and I often think of my work in both art and science as mapmaking activities, where I bring my own personal sense of order to unorganized collections of data. So, being included in this show is very meaningful for me. The opening is Friday, March 11, 5:30 to 7:30 PM.
Update 2015-10-22: Compendium was written up in the New York Times! Thanks to Karen Lipson for a nice review.
Many thanks to Debra Eck for including me in a group show called Colliding Worlds at the 3rd on 3rd Gallery in the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts in Jamestown, NY. The show features four artists who work at the intersection of science, medicine, and art (Courtney Blackmon, Julie Mader, David Cotton, and myself). I will have both mobiles and sculpted prints on display.
The show runs from May 8 to May 29, 2015.
I am happy to be showing six pieces across two group exhibitions beginning in the first week of December. Both shows are in downtown Ithaca, and the opening receptions are on First Friday Gallery Night, December 5 from 5 PM to 8 PM.
Update 2014-12-24: My six-part piece, The Garden Below, has won the People's Choice Award at the State of the Art Gallery's Annual Juried Show.
Many thanks to Taney Roniger, curator of Caldaria, an online forum on art and science, for publishing my short essay, On Art and Science. My contribution is hopefully the first of many from members of the sci-art community on the emerging relationship between art and science. A fertile topic, indeed!
