Order and chaos.

In "order and chaos", the spiraling hollowed shapes of the  seashell evolve with  continuity   exactitude and perfection,  while the shapes that came out of  these hollows form a fractal chaos of  leaves . Both elements hollowed in and hollowed out are  in contrast and harmony at the same time.


 In this series Titled  Millefiori. I sculpted a virtual three dimensional seashell,

 I used my own photos and paintings and painted the surface of the object to reflect its background.

As one of the earliest traditional painter to embrace the digital media, (Image de Synthese.) I work with professional imaging software, not as a medium to emulate techniques of the past, but to the contrary as a medium that  opens the door to new horizons of artistic expression by surpassing traditional techniques.

The digital media allows  limitless possibilities of color relationship and color subtleties which do not exist in traditional methods, as this painting shows, that is why I often compose combine and bring forward my traditional work to be enhanced by the digital media.
