In the run-up to an upcoming (May 1 – 30) exhibition in Berlin, I decide to make some small works to punctuate the subdued schematic tenor of (7) pieces from the “someChromos” series. Currently, this new series is eleven (11) miniature-scale (5.5″ x 6″) panels; collages of a warmer representational bent that present imageries related to natural life’s evolution on Earth. Viewers are challenged to track similarities and differences across the separate panels’ pictorials; to discover the flows and fractures of biological life’s variations, advancements and/or failures.
Meanwhile, my hope is that the *ArtScience Exhibition arrangement of the works will alternate between both series to affect a sort of conceptual tempo between the stoic conceptual internalism (of the genomic schematics) with the warmer sensibilities (of the naturalist compositions). These two different-but-related serial expressions of evolutionary developments are meant to allure viewers’ deeper pictorial inspections; to elicit curious discourses about Human integrations within the Natural Order.
