"Stereograms were somehow left to computers with their patterns hidden in monochromatic static. I knew a carefully planned painting could employ that effect and draw attention to a vertical pattern that suggests something more. Try to relax your eyes and look far away for a 3D effect."
From Anchorage, Alaska, Jesse Jackson Brown lives in Kalispell, Montana. He remembers as a young child, staring through a wallpaper pattern behind his homework desk. The clowns and roses looked a mile away and one thousand feet tall. “I remember how visually exciting and fun it was to 'stare through' the computer-composed static and see three-dimensional figures jump out of pages or off of posters. I also remember thinking "they need more color”.” A land surveyor by trade, Brown has been lucky to live and work in the Flathead Valley for over 20 years.
