Principally an attempt to visually bridge the gap between the zeros and ones of digital creation and the analogue world of painting, this piece is the final result of a meandering process that has permanently led me out of the painting studio and into the realm of time based work. Nebulous in nature, it is most accurately perceived as a digital painting: existing only in the form of a digital daydream, Betaplasia I tells the non-linear and ever-morphing story of creation, experimentation, the beauty of painting.

An inter-disciplinary artist increasingly curious about the relationships between color, composition, pace and place, I’ve spent the last couple of years staking out a new path for myself by embracing animation, special effects, and interactive software into my creative process. Initially triggered by personal loss and the subsequent weariness over adding more objects to a society already stuffed to the rim, my past as a painter led me to the exploration of time-based media with a particular interest in digital stop-motion animation. To that effect, my latest body of work is best understood as animated paintings.
