“Painters go through a catastrophe, or through a conflagration, and leave the trace of this passage on the canvas, as of the leap that leads them from chaos to composition.” Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari. "What is Philosophy?". London & New York. 1994
Chaosmos /a term first coined by James Joyce and later by French philosophers Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari / represents the cyclic dance of creation. The constant universal and complementary movement between chaos and cosmos, between disorder and order, between harmony and dissonance.
In the Chaosmos series I experiment with recurrent cycles of deconstruction and reconstruction to break free from the fixity of the habitual and let emerge new creative associations and aesthetics. This practice became an evolutionary activators in which I weave both digital alteration and physical deconstruction, to create hybrid analogue/digital mixed media works. I deconstruct and alter forms, patterns, textures, layers in search of new “gestalts”, letting an unplanned re-ordering flow shape new compositions. I combine physical textures with manipulated digital images, stencils, painting, collage and assemblages.

"For a photon, smallest particle of light, time has dilated to infinity, there is no space and no mass".
A. Steinhardt Physicist
Bewitched by the mystery of light traveling from the far ends of the universe carrying information from other worlds, light emerged as both a subject and a medium early in my work. In 2003 I created my first fibre optic light sculpture and became fascinated by the texture of light itself. The Lightscapes series started as photographic experiments born in the studio while creating light sculptures, moving and dancing around the light sculptures with the camera or playing with fibre optic or other light objects while making still shots. I captured accidental landscapes made of waves and threads of light that seam to come from other dimensions. I now use these digital light textures as a base material to create sacred geometry digital collages and compositions, yantras and mandalas made of light and optical patterns.
