A PAINTER-SCIENTIST!

I think of myself as a painter-scientist. As a painter, I interact with my subject personally and aesthetically, and as a scientist I try to discover what realities lie beneath what we see in the "real" world and how we perceive it. The scientist in me sees the world through a microscope. The artist sees the world through large, invisible "aesthetic glasses". As an artist, I create paintings which express the mysteries and beauty of color, chaos, diversity, order and harmony. As a scientist, my paintings illustrate the mysteries of fractal delineations in nature which form the very basis for nature's aesthetic. As an artist, I try to uncover the absurdity of "objective notions of reality" while as a scientist, I work to make my paintings accurate as they reproduce intricate and minute details of the world I really see.

ART REALITY TV SHOW? JEFFREY DEITCH'S "ARTSTAR" PROJECT: A JOKE OR HUMILIATION? PERHAPS, BOTH!

New Yorker Jeffrey Deitch, a self-proclaimed art critic, art expert, art judge, and art everything is working on a crazy, grotesque and perhaps incomprehensibly clever project. An art reality show! To the well "established" art connoisseurs, academicians and experts in the field, Deitch's TV program (still an idea in its infancy) is either a joke or a mockery of art, par excellence. But, to the starving artists in New York, Deitch's ambitious plan might work. In fact, it began to work in a very bizarre way on and in  the streets and sidewalks of New York city. Struggling and desperate artists dying for recognition, an exposure, even a brief one, a career boost, a buck or two, were lined up in the streets, on the sidewalks and  around the corners of Green Street and Grand Street in SoHo, New York City.
