"The Malmstrom Shutdown" is a painting that is designed to present a scene of a dual reality. It depicts an incident when a UFO hovered over Malmstrom USAF missile base in 1967. The shutdown of the nuclear missile systems was attributed to the unknown craft. In 2012, I began exploring new visual representations in space-ism with various shapes on wood panel.

I was born in Salem, MA and raised in the Greater Boston area. My youth was spent in ice rinks, but I managed to discover my passion for making art. In 2001, I earned a BFA in Graphic Design with Honors from Montserrat College of Art. During the following year, I began work on the “space-ism” concept which produced the first piece for the Icon Series. The concept focuses on creating planes of space within two dimensional artwork 
while simplifying the imagery to geometric shapes. In addition, I produce drawings, mixed media pieces, and work as a graphic designer. Since 2003, my wife and I have been stuck in the terrifying traffic of Southern California.
