In this beautiful and amazing series we explore what is theorized in physics as an "Einstein-Rosen Bridge." It is also known as a wormhole or stargate, providing a shortcut to a distant part of the universe, another dimension or plane of reality. By accessing this multidimensional stargate technology, we will be able to transport our physical bodies to wondrous places in the Multiverse.
All of the pieces in this series are first painted digitally, then the dyes of the image are embedded in aluminum (learn more about the sublimation process below).

Sublimation onto metal is a new, cutting edge, way to reproduce an image, but has been used in the textile industry for decades. Sublimation itself is the process of going from a solid to a gas, back to a solid - skipping the liquid state.The image is first printed onto a transfer paper and then is adhered to pretreated aluminum (other substrates such as tile, wood, or glass are also available).The aluminum and transfer paper are placed into a custom heat press, which is heated to temperatures exceeding 380 degrees Fahrenheit. While being subjected to extreme heat and pressure, the dyes from the transfer paper turn into a gas, are pressed into the surface of the metal, and then solidify into the treated aluminum. As the dyes cool they are permanently infused beneath the surface of the metal substrate.
Aluminum Float Backing
Fastening Metal Prints to allow them ready to hang with the illusion of float of the wall. Minimal, contemporary look. The aluminum float back system has a lip which provides for easy wall installments.
