Painting will be dead when looking is dead, when we start receiving all visual input from video transmissions sent to the chip implanted in the visual cortex of our brains rather than through our eyes. Then the physicality of an image won't matter because nothing will have physicality. Since those days are coming soon, I will look hard at my subjects now, and paint!

These paintings are among those from this series being exhibited in TILT Export: Fanatic at Upfor Gallery in Portland, OR April 2-26, 2014. Tim Flowers & Rebecca Ripple

Shiny, concave facets form the tortured geometry of these paintings. A fascination with complexity, with shifting light and color, and with a physicality of surface, leads me to straddle the edge of visual recognition, making a sort of enhanced incomprehension from my observations.
