I’ve been playing around with generation of “three dimensional Turing Patterns.” For this example, I started with a random 3D cube of voxels and repeatedly applied a 3D blurring-and-sharpening algorithm to the cube. After a while, the system reaches a state in which you have positive and negative shapes and each slice is itself a […]

I’m experimenting with video Turing Patterns. Here’s a short video that moves back and forth between a time lapse film of clouds in the sky and Turing Patterns created using the video frames as seed images.  (YouTube compresses the heck out of the video, unfortunately.  You can also try watching it via Facebook (be sure […]

There’s an excellent article on Turing Patterns on ideas.ted.com, “How the Zebra Got Its Stripes, with Alan Turing“.  It summarizes the reaction-diffusion process between an activator and an inhibitor which Turing proposed could be responsible for many patterns in nature.  Recent research seems to confirm that Turing was right at least for some patterns, such […]

Hope you can make it to the West Windsor Arts Council (950 Alexander Rd, West Windsor, NJ) today (Sunday, May 18, 6pm) for my artist talk! I’ll be covering abstraction, meaning, philosophy, cognitive science, and more in this discussion of my work and of abstract art in general. There will be light refreshments served before […]

My exhibition, Concepts + Realizations, with Alan J. Klawans is up for just a few more days at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville.  The show runs through Sunday, October 6, and gallery hours 11am-6pm (Thurs-Sun). If you haven’t seen the show and would like to, this is your last chance!  I’ll be at the gallery on […]

Thank you to the folks over at Munsell Color (a division of X-Rite, Inc., focusing on color products and standards related to the Munsell Color System) for inviting me to contribute a blog post about my use of color!  For the article: Color Theory, Computer Color and the Artwork of Andrew Werth

My next 2-person show at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville is still more than four months away and I’m hard at work on a new body of paintings for the show. Until then, I’d like to invite you to save the date for the opening reception: September 7, 2013 (time still TBD). Once again I will […]

I’ll be one of the speakers at tonight’s “Arts, Culture, Tech, & Community” meetup at Artworks in Trenton.  (19 Everett Alley, Trenton, New Jersey, Wednesday, March 27, from 6:00-8:00pm).  This is a monthly gathering of people interested in discussing the uses of technology in art.  My talk, a brief 15-20 minutes or so, will be […]

It’s been an exciting year art-wise and I just wanted to take a few minutes to share some highlights.  But first, thank you to all of my friends, family, collectors, and followers for all of the encouragement, kind words, and art-talk we’ve shared this year.  I’ve had the pleasure once again of being with Artists’ […]

I’m very happy to report that five of my paintings will be included in a 3-person exhibition at the ArtTimesTwo gallery at Princeton Brain and Spine Care Institute, along with the work of Jennifer Cadoff and Debra Weier. The show, “Energy in Mind”, will include art whose abstract subject relates to consciousness and mental energy […]

This month at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ, I have ten paintings hanging on the walls throughout the gallery’s various exhibition spaces.  While I finish getting everything ready for my big show of completely new work next month, I’m using this opportunity to hang a variety of work from the last several years, including some […]

Tomorrow (Saturday, August 18, 2012) is the last chance to see the “Trenton Makes” show in Chelsea at Prince Street Gallery (530 W 25th Street, 4th Floor).  My painting, “Approaching Equilibrium,” is in the show along with the work of many other artists from central New Jersey. There is still time to see the Trenton […]

I’m very happy to announce that one of my paintings, Approaching Equilibrium (acrylic on panel, 20×20), will be a part of a group show entitled, “Trenton Makes”, at the Prince Street Gallery in Chelsea.  The exhibition, which features a diverse selection of art from central New Jersey artists, runs from July 31 through August 18, […]

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing’s birth, I thought I’d put together a posting of some of my paintings that owe a direct debt to Mr. Turing, and not just because he’s one of the fathers of computer science (see today’s Google Doodle).  These paintings feature “Turing Patterns” as the key compositional […]
