“Regenaissance (Polyversikube)” is a nine canvas polyptych conceptually inspired by the principle elements of fractals, the Golden Ratio, and a Rubik’s Cube. The name “Regenaissance” is an abstract composite derived from the words Renaissance (meaning “rebirth”) and Genesis (meaning “the beginning”). Presented in a 3 x 3 structural format, each of the nine components can be moved, rotated, and rearranged so that any side of any element can connect to any side of any of the other eight pieces. The result of the calculated configurations is a broad and almost limitless spectrum of orientations and variations with which to play; 95,126,814,720 to be exact.

Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box. We all create our own boxes and some more than others.
This painting tells a story of creation and the interconnectedness of relationships. If you look closely, you may spot a large figure in the upper right corner and a much smaller figure in the bottom right. The smaller figure is in a state of genesis, feeding and growing from the nourishment and energy of the other.

This painting does does has ties to a specific creation story, referencing Eve being created from the rib of Adam. The female form form was modeled after someone that later came back and vandalized the painting, cutting through it right where Eve’s rib is. I had to patch Eve’s rib and carefully repair it, which I feel added to the symbolism and energy of the painting.

Year ago I sacrificed one of my paintings “The Transmutation Of Miss-Tere” in an alchemical process of equivalent exchange (video footage available on YouTube). In order to obtain, a sacrifice is always necessary. I saved the remnants of the framework that survived the flames and shaped them in the form of an “A” for “Acrylic Alchemy.” It is floating between two pieces of glass and you can still spot one of the dollar bills that was part of the sacrificed painting. I have not yet had an opportunity to showcase this piece but it is available. Sacrifices of this nature have become a regular part of my work and process.

I think a lot of people think of artists as unorganized and all over the place…but I don’t believe I could be much further from that. Organization and structure are very important parts of my process. This comes down from painting care, preparation, and even the organization of my colors for quick/efficient color mixing and inventory. Healthy habits, behaviors, and rituals find a way to work themselves into every aspect of your life, which is why it’s important to have them. Focus and clearly defined goals go a long way. Not there yet? That’s okay. Take baby steps. You will get there.
