Over two decades of focused, structured education and experiences centered on scientific pursuits lead me to a critical and distinct view of the world, people and emotions. Art offers me a unique means of expressing complex concepts, while simultaneously allowing viewers deep introspection. My representation of people as NuTec Molecular Portraits removes the cultural, socio-economic, racial, sexual and religious baggage we automatically associate with images of people, yet it’s an accurate representation of a person in a given moment in time. This frees you to ponder the theme at hand, see glimpses of yourself in the work and enjoy the interplay of colors, textures, and shapes. Each NuTec spot, in isolation devoid of meaning, combined into a portrait speaks to the many facets that make up the self. I invite you to contemplate the following works, colored by my past and speaking through personal scientific discoveries.
