I am inspired by the big patterns of the human brain's 85 billion neurons.  In 2000, I embarked

on the enormous task of creating an international brain database.  I am still discovering the

brain's structure-function-behavior patterns that have fueled these paintings.


This TD-bu Brain Face Series is my external imaginary mirror of the non-conscious brain.

I deliberately keep the face simplified (TOP DOWN).

And the bu (bottom up) of very detailed  patterns seek to reflect the sublime  complexity of the brain’s ongoing dynamics: of its 15 billion hugely interconnected neurons that manifest in summation, its ongoing symphony.
