These paintings are part of a series entitled “Cloudbuster Series".
As Wilhelm Reich designed it, a Cloudbuster is a device measuring etheric vibrations that Reich purported to be able to measure, targeting specific zones of nefarious energies in order to clear them. This "dead orgone" energy is emanating from industrial sites, nuclear plants, or overpopulated cities. The Cloudbuster promises to heal the planet of the negative human psychic impact on his environment.
"The future is not what it used to be" is the title of my 2011 exhibition in Houston.
This series of paintings stems from a constellation of ideas around landscape painting and a contemporary ecological frame of mind. The paintings depict, for the most part, hybrid landscapes, weaving abstract patterns with realistic natural and urban airplane and satellite viewpoints. Various constructions and modern architecture are included as metaphors for the technological world we live in. I am interested in the very fabric that constitutes reality and how nature and culture alike could be perceived as arbitrary mental constructions. The fracture within the landscape continuum suggests that the reality we live in and represent figuratively is just a weave of multidimensional timelines of quantum energies made visible.
