String Theory, The Artist Program, Deborah Berke Partners, New York, NY, March 22 - May 25, 2018.

String Theory consists of recent sculpture complemented by a selection of works on paper.  With philosophical affinities to traditional Chinese and Japanese art and urban graffiti, these works express the artist's interest in line, dynamic structure and kinetic space.  They explore what the philosopher Alan Watts refers to as the "wiggliness of reality".  The sculptures serve, in their own fashion, as objects of meditation, partnering with their cast shadows to create a dance of form and non-form, evoking thoughts of Plato's cave.  In the paintings on paper, brushwork suggests an unseen movement beyond the boundaries of the edge and hints at deeper realities behind surface appearances.
