Copan, 1989 available through Canvas Gallery

This is my most recent painting that is currently available through Canvas Gallery.


Specs: Copan, 1989, Mixed media on panel, 8" x 8" x 2", 2016, $140

About: The text laid down behind the graphic images is part of the wikipedia entry for the number 8, as this piece was created on an 8 x 8 panel. The glyphs or symbols laid down over top were done while reminiscing about a visit to the mayan ruins in Copan, Honduras in the summer of 1989. I was particularly intrigued by a hieroglyphic stairway there which seemed to be composed of rectangles within a rectangular staircase.

Pi to 79 decimal places

Here is a piece I have been working on over the summer. It is titled, Pi to 79 decimal places. I started laying down the numbers and when I got to 79, I felt the piece was finished. However, as with Pi, I could easily have kept on going.
