The Sparrow and the sparrows

2018. 16” x 16”, ink on paper.

This drawing is a representation of the visual-cognitive loop, in which the brain generates a hypothesis (a proto-image) of what it expects to see *before* visual input is processed, and then continually edits this hypothesis based on the visual information received.

All prints are museum-quality giclée (pigment) prints. The are unmatted, and are made with a quarter-inch, blank margin for framing purposes.

The red layer (the proto-image, is a generic "bird" without any reference at all), and was drawn first. The black layer was drawn second, and used reference from life and ornithological books.
As reference for the next layer (dark orange), a small lithograph was used, representing one of the original prototypes on which the artist’s library of generic proto-images is based.
Finally, the light orange layer represents a modified visual hypothesis that attempts to integrate the original proto-image with the referenced layers. These layers form a complete loop between proto-image modeling and external references.

All prints are museum-quality giclée (pigment) prints. The are unmatted, and are made with a quarter-inch, blank margin for framing purposes. Large prints are ordered on-demand, so there will be a two-week wait before the order will ship.
