A long time ago I began to combine my love for stained glass with what little I knew of Cubism and Futurism, and later began to incorporate the cerebral qualities of Surrealism, fractal geometry and theoretical physics.  The Futurists celebrated the speed and energy of The Combustion Age and promoted civilization's triumph over nature–the idea that we are apart from nature has always seemed insane to me and my work celebrates the opposite.  As a nod to the past, but recognizing the need for a more sustainable future, I named this deconstructed style "Futuraesthetic.”
