About the Poster:
As science, technology, and digital media continue to influence the trajectory of contemporary art, my current practice addresses the space where simulated abstraction becomes hyperreality, referencing a dimension beyond our three. In painting and electronic media, I employ technology to mimic theoretical but non-existent — or even impossible — content. The result is trompe-l'œil of a subject not of our known physical world, aligning the theosophy of abstraction with the worship of the illuminated screen.
