    Biography

    Quantum Paintings and Sculptures in Light
    Light:Definition:
    1: noun  the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible:A dual nature. Light exists simultaneously as both particle and wave. A paradox-See Quantum


    2: verb  noun  spiritual illumination by divine truth.
    ‘It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.’ Henry David Thoreau

    As an artist and a physcist with a Ph.D. in light physics and materials, I cannot help but see the world from a different perspective.
    For any artist, we look for resonance as we access our individual experiences seeking  the visual metaphors which drive our vision.The same duality as found in light has also gone on to inspire everything from Art, to The Atomic Theory to, most currently, our very Consciousness; the duality paradox forced a paradigm shift in not only scientific thinking but is leading us into the Fourth Revolution: one of Thought. Illumination in thought and in reality challenges not just the artist but all of us.
    Using special transparent plastics and wavelengths of light both to illuminate the work and create it, the duality of my work is implicit. Without light the work appears dark;  Add light and it resonates in colour: changing only with a slight movement of the head.
    The laws of pattern in both evolution and environment have long fascinated me: add to this, the fleeting resonant chords of our consciousness to the things around, and we have a natural link between the seemingly chaotic and order, the natural world and our minds.
     Different doesn’t stop at what should be,but what could be.
