I love painting, playing with the energy of color, with the
seen/unseen, perceptions/ideas regarding various elements of different dimensions/being, & the illusions of this material/physical plane. I like to incorporate elements of what might be referred to as representationalism, abstraction, & surrealism (however, I do not care for labels/categories/etc)…..using a mix of color, humor, mystical/dream elements, lyricism/story telling, imagined times/places/situations, & pattern.
To me, all of the arts are in essence a documentary, a glimpse into our spiritual journeys as individuals, as human beings living in a grand, incredible, multi-dimensional array of being, experiences, perceptions, situations, observations, reactions, feelings, narratives, relationships, etc. in this time & place, in this world we presently call home.
A home offering such an endless, curious spectrum of circumstances often challenging the most basic of human needs, questions, perceptions, and being regarding our inner and outer worlds……& other worlds. We seem to be called to imagine, create, respect, and develop more expansive ideas of what home & our connectedness is and can be amidst an ever changing world and life/land scape.
A home steeped in a myriad of questions and issues portrayed in so many amazing ways by so many creative beings throughout time.
