I moved to Chicago from Las Vegas to a less than modest flat on the 5th floor at “The Envoy” out in the Bryn Mawr historic district of Chicago, IL. My days were spent reconfiguring the 10x10x10 Series during the brutal blizzard winter that was happening at the time. My days consisted of battling the snow while walking to a quiet Swedish start up restaurant in Andersonville called “Summerdale”, and coming home to paint into the wee hours of the morning.
At this time I was heavily reflecting on all the work I had done, and simultaneously focusing on what I could do to make it better.
One piece in particular, was “Dimension Mouse”, which entailed mirroring the work of Bridget Riley and her geometric psychedelic works of the 1960’s.
