Traditional and digital painting, net art
A work of art is a slab of time. The time it takes to create it, the time it takes to view it or understand it, and the time in which the work itself exists. This is part of the intrinsic value of art. Paint is just mud, pixels are numbers stored in a memory register. The application of time and intent gives them meaning and value.
I make "Internet Art" in the form of web sites with a single idea or image enhanced with a little bit of animation or interactivity.
If this art is freely available on the public internet, then these pieces are digital murals. I like to project them on the wall.

"Guacamole Tips" is a web painting about waking up in a strange room in a strange place. And some tips about making guacamole.

A painting for Instagram. This image was cut into a grid of 12 images and then posted one piece at a time over the course of a week to Instagram. The layout of the piece is intended to be “read” one block at a time so that a visual narrative unfolds with each post, leading to the whole image.
