My art explores the interaction between the conceptual conscious intentional natures and primal emotive impulses. I apply my past work and study in experimental cognitive psychology to the canvass and to conceptual installation, visually representing schematized concepts as they would be in the human mind in the process of being brought from memory and applied to sensual building blocks. I respond to these schemata borrowing from techniques of early, abstract and post-expressionists. I continue this process, taking these and responding to them, incorporating them into large installations exploring particular types of psychological phenomena or conducting psychological experiments using the pieces as stimuli. The end result is a slow-motion cycle of conceptual-expressive interactions, hopefully stirring a circling between sensation and contemplation.
