I am happy today to introduce my latest work
"The Simultaneous Ecstacy of Feeling both Everything and Nothing"
Oil on Canvas 30"x48" March 2018
Life and living in this world holds many mysteries. Being rational beings individuals are conflicted as to being connected to heaven, or earth. The ultimate goal being present and experiencing them both. Here my figure is embraced by the skeletal fractal figure which acts as both the cupola of heaven and the roots to earth.

A personal note of thanks to Gary Webb for generously sharing his parameters from which the original fractal was derived.
I am pleased to be able to present to you today my latest painting;
“Benoit Mandelbrot Breaks Wind”
Oil on Canvas – 50”x30”
You probably would not expect, looking at this alien landscape, that you are looking at a macroscopic view of the famous mathematician, Benoit Mandelbrot’s rectum. In Mandelbrots attempt to describe nature, it was his observation that there is nothing smooth in nature. The shape of mountains, clouds or a cauliflower, are not smooth, but fractal, and for the first time, my latest painting here captures that even a gaseous eruption can follow the form of the famous fractal. Also shown for the first time is the fractal geometry found in the buttocks area, and at the moment of expulsion, the fractal shrapnel that ensues.
I do not know if this oil painting is the first or only depiction of this act, but am certain it is the most beautiful.
