ARTIST BIO
For the past 25 years or so, I've been teaching visual perception to undergraduates in psychology and biology. However, about 10 years ago I was asked to teach in a different venue and to a different population of students: Students in the visual arts. Faced with this challenge, I found myself wondering how an understanding of the biology and psychology of sensation and perception might benefit the work of a visual artist. Why is it that sometimes a black and white image is more visually compelling than one in full color and sometimes not? Can an understanding of how the brain's machinery extracts information from the pattern of light falling on the retina, give artists an additional set of tools and insights that inform their choices in how to arrange the light, shadow, color and textures of the media in which they work. Much of my own work then, has been an attempt to explore the implications of questions like these and experiment with some their tentative answers. But this is perhaps all a bit too technical. So, there is also this: Ultimately, I hope that when all the dust settles, my work can be thought of as a celebration of human vision.
