The Eye (of the Storm?) (From the Memoirs Series) - Double Layer

"Life is flux" - Heraclitus of Ephesus (late 6th century BCE)

The Memoirs series explores the artist’s life path, taking both a retrospective and introspective look at past and present. The work focuses on where the artist finds himself now and how he got here. The expressionistic and ever more abstract, subject-less works reflect the artist's view that photographs and the reality they are tied to are nothing more than tools for inner expression.

The original works are created by combining several images in layers, concealing and reveling parts of each image through a painting process, effectively using the photographs themselves as digital paint. He then uses computer programming to manipulate the images further, deconstructing, reconstructing and shifting them, adding a spatio-temporal element to the work, reminding us that change is the only constant in life.

Evolving from previous artworks in the Flux Series, this work is created through a double-layered asynchronous shift, taking the base image and subsequent layers, shifting each independently at different rates.
