“Energy is neither created nor destroyed only transformed.” – Law of Conservation of Energy.
“Energy” has become one of the most important issues steering the cultural and economic
discourse of the early 21st century. Every aspect of our lives is influenced by our energy
consumption, how that energy is sourced, its environmental impact and its sustainability. The
preoccupation with our energy dilemma along with the laws of physics that govern energy, its
transformation and behavior and by extension all matter, constitute the conceptual foundation
of this body of work.

In 1924 French physicist Louis de Broglie proposed the theory of wave-particle duality. Waveparticle duality holds that light and matter exhibit properties of both particle and wave such as
wavelength and frequency, thus concluding that all physical matter vibrates at its own innate
frequency and wavelength. Mathematical representations of these vibrations, much like sound
and light are sinusoidal waveforms. Waveforms are used as the primary visual motif and
structural element in these works to aid in meaningfully describing concepts such as existence,
being, becoming, and reality. The subject matter is celebrated for both its physical form and its
hidden or invisible nature.

waveWORKS is a re-assessment of traditional visual representations of the physical world,
utilizing several artistic traditions such as portraiture and still life to express a new
consciousness and awareness of the fundamental nature of all matter: energy.
