It's #FredArtistFriday! This week, we're happy to present Conan Chadbourne. Conan received a BA in Mathematics and Physics from New York University in 2011. He has worked in experimental physics research, digital imaging and printing, graphic design, and documentary film production. He draws inspiration for his work from his experience in mathematics and the sciences, and frequently exhibits at the Bridges Conference for Mathematics in the Arts. He lives in San Antonio where he works as a freelance graphic designer and documentary film producer.
"My work is motivated by a profound interest in nature and cosmology and the abstractions which humans use to understand the universe. I draw upon ideas in mathematics, science, psychology, and theology to create my images. These disciplines, each in their way are focused on expanding our understanding of the universe and our place in it. I consider the models and abstractions that these fields use to be fascinating and beautiful, and I try to reflect the intricacy and elegance of these theoretical constructs in my images."
