About Rick

I am research scientist that back in late 2010 began to play with Apophysis. I showed my work to a few friends and colleagues. With their encouragement I picked a few pieces for printing and put them up in a local gallery. Following further encouragement and compliments I began the process of learning how to best print and display my work. The latter being far more challenging for me that actually creating the art work. For the moment I’ll be trying to master the intricacies of Apophysis and later hope to expand to other fractal engines.

Focal Point

I am now the webmaster for Focal Point Gallery in Chapel Hill, an artist run gallery. In September our artists will have works  themed around the return to school and John Updike’s poem, ‘September.’
