I make art and share ideas by taking the question marks in my life and bending them into exclamation points. I employ an iterative process honed by experience in research, athletics, and art to present complex ideas in compelling ways.For over a decade I have explored and combined traditional art materials with digital techniques demonstrating creative fluency. By moving with ease and grace through a variety of media, I focus on communicating ideas and I gain knowledge in the process.I work intuitively and iteratively when creating art and often apply scientific methodology to my art practice with the rigor of a seasoned athlete.By observing human behavior, asking generative questions, and analyzing information, I experience daily how a disciplined process leads to comprehension of complex data and ideas. I use my artistic sensibility to present my findings in unique and compelling ways.I appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of the artist's life. I aspire to travel, to teach, and to create while extending my exhibition record. Being nourished creatively while partaking in a challenging path is a delight, and I particularly relish learning along the way.Art is the most practical, essential, and exciting field of work in the world today, and I look forward to sharing it with you.PETE IPPELBorn: 1979, Oak Park, ILLives and works in Ventura, CAemail: firstname.lastname@example.org: http://peteippel.comblog: http://hypermodern.netEDUCATIONSAN FRANCISCO ART INSTITUTE, 2002-2004M.F.A., New Genres, 2004Critique seminars: Tony Labat, Paul Kos, Tom Marioni, Trisha Donnelly.
