We are surrounded by transient beings. They are gatekeepers to other dimensions, shapeshifting
in multiple formations. Their bodies are resonant vessels allured by the Cosmos oscillatory vibrations. They are travellers, messengers. In a rhythmic symbiosis with their surroundings, their bodies operate as transmitters and receivers. From their glowing metamorphic skin, they emit patterns of light. They are transducers of energy.
The Kimonos’ patterns propose a new visual lexicon that works as a cosmogram with a rhythmic appeal to ascension. By using spray gun paint imprinted through stencils of discarded material found in foundries, garbage and taken from gardens, the artist builds visual scores structured by color frequencies that treat the body as a speaker, as a vessel for reverberation. The 3D-schematics of its pantone suggests the kinetics of multidimensional space, a pact with journeying where bodies become not one but a simulation, a potential orchestra of vibrations. They also re-affirm our need to imagine distinct cosmologies and speculate about original myths, and other modalities of being. -Margarida Mendes

The Special Agents are a suite of works that are their own version of stained glass. Some are lit by sunlight and some by LED.
The light-boxes are improvisations with color and light and constructed with monotypes (oil on polypropylene) depicting landscapes. The monotypes are punctured with cut shapes illuminated by colored gels. The work addresses the audience in both sensual and symbolic ways, inviting them to think about cosmic time and the emotional resonance of color seen through light, its historic associations with religion and spirituality, and its ability to be didactic and sensory at the same time.
The images are astrological depictions. They are telling an origin story of the Rola civilization, in different phases.
20 min, oil on wood, portraits painted from life at the local laundromat, then given to the sitter. Catskill, NY

WATER PANICS IN THE SEA follows the voyage of a ghost ship as it traverses the ocean waters. Derived from mono-type prints and drawings, the film seeks to question our habitual perceptions through an intricate use of scale, distance, time and space.
WATER PANICS IN THE SEA plays every night, January 1-31 2014 from 11:57pm to midnight.
Commissioned by Ballroom Marfa and The High Line
In collaboration with Shahzad Ismaily’s Atom Fables to the West Side October 10 and 11, 2011 | 8:00 PM
