I have always had an obsession with triangles and devoted my artistic life into exploring this unique, powerful and mysterious basic geometric form. Triangulation is the formation of or division into triangles while a fractal is an abstract object used to describe and simulate naturally occurring objects. My process involves constructing, deconstructing and fragmenting images, data, and information geometrically into triangulated segments. I have developed a unique style and execution of my work to unify it but the soul of it depends on the inspiration and the statement I am making. My latest inspiration and series consists of a mixture between technology, quantum physics, idealism vs. materialism and physical art with a belief that we live in a geometric triangulated reality made of information.
