My main preoccupation as an artist is how a two dimensional surface can be exploited as a projective plane to reflect shadows of four-dimensional geometry. An ingredient that permeates my imagery is an exploitation of the Necar effect, where forms appear to change their orientation. Such forms seem to spontaneously reverse or turn inside-out. In so doing, they are in effect rotating around a plane something that only a four-dimensional object can do. Combined with simultaneous contrasting colour, this can create a scintillating glimpse of an aspect of the fourth dimension. These images are the result of an attempt to refine the geometry to make it as accessible as possible, without taking away the sublime mystery four-dimensional space can evoke. .
