OMG

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

OMG is the result of several years of contemplation of reported spiritual energy/mass transfigurations throughout history. My inspiration was a photograph I took which displayed energy patterns not visible to the naked eye. I collaged my photographs together with public domain images from mythology, history, philosophy, theology, paleontology, literature, art, science, fantasy, and my imagination. The result is a meditation on ancient and contemporary beliefs, recent findings of modern science, and implications for the future of man and the cosmos. The work consists of hundreds of manipulated Photoshop layers, further enhanced in Corel Painter, printed on canvas, and overpainted with acrylic. Due to the esoteric nature of some of the elements I felt compelled to prepare an accompanying document with brief explanations of each. The non-default image is the narrative. The first three people who viewed the work in progress all had the same reaction. Thus, the title, "OMG".

Venue & Connection Information

Electrical would be great but is not absolutely necessary. I am working on an audio soundtrack to be played through bluetooth speakers mounted behind the frame. The speakers can be battery operated, but a 110volt receptacle would be a bonus. The main piece framed measures 68 inches wide by 39 inches high. The accompanying framed narrative measures 30 inches wide by 40 inches high. Hung together, the wall space required for both would be minimum 100 inches. If you wish to read the narrative and cannot, due to size and resolution, please contact me.

Venue Considerations
  • Special Lighting needed: No
  • Internet needed: No
  • Indoor Space needed: Yes
  • Outdoor Space needed: No
  • Audio/Video needed: No
  • Electrical needed: No
