In December 2016, I presented a suite of works called Empyrean Prismatic Room at Satellite Art Show in Miami during Miami Art Week.
The centerpiece, called The Witnesses, was set in a pure white room, awash in sunlight during the day, but imperceptibly lit with RGB lights overhead. As the sun set over the course of the day, the room gradually became activated with prismatic shadows cast in geometric patterns throughout the installation. The imagery, painted in airbrushed watercolor on the front and scorched wood on the back portrayed a tableau of human silhouettes and angels of the Merkabah, or Chariot of God, as described in the Biblical Vision of Ezekiel. Parmenides Contemplating the Fates of Martyrs, an eight-foot long stainless steel etching was a visitor favorite.
All the pieces belong to an ongoing series of work called Anarkhos which explores the human tendency to seek oblivion and absolve oneself of accountability in everyday life, and the various ways we do this.
