“And I asked if destruction was// only found in the caesura of their voices, harpooning from the/ science of street corner pulpits where my eyes only looked to/ trample their help.”

Entropy #054: This image is a multiple exposure of a derelict hospital and a wave. Like all my works in the series Paintings for a Robot, this piece was created by putting thousands of digital images into a video editing program. The images were then randomly merged together. Painters famously spend enormous amounts of time working on sketches, cartoons, etc. before putting brush to canvas. And then they spend endless weeks, months, or years, finishing their vision. Technology will change all this. Just like brushes improved image making in the first civilizations BC, computers and robotic devices will replace the insane manual labor involved in creating the paintings that are part of the canon. If robots can do surgery they can surely make a painting.
“White Dog On The Road” is something of a testament to wanderers, for dogs and ourselves. Roads provide a way to escape, to discover. Maybe we are leaving some place for a different future or fate. Maybe we are going home. Roads are endless, much like dreams, both good and bad.
-Christopher Woods, “White Dog on the Road”
“Swan Lake is about man/woman’s interaction with nature and how well or how awkwardly we fit in nature. I like the wariness of the swan, yet it hangs close for a better view. Curiosity and recklessness are dangerous bedfellows.”
