It may seem strange, but my paintings are about reality. Not the everyday world we see around us, but the astonishing world that science has shown us in the last 100 years. Art has had very little to say about this world — the mysterious cosmos of dark matter, dark energy and spacetime.

How do you paint these things — that is the question. My answer is to let the materials speak for themselves; I set up experiments in which the forces of nature create works of art.
