My paintings express “realities” which are possible only in spirit. The various series on this site explore elemental energies, ethereal landscapes, and our human journey. Each series is a distinct approach, yet they all express a sense of wonder and, taken together, become a meditation on the veil between seen and unseen.
Recently, I embarked on three new exhibits expressing earth’s vital energies: water, fire and air.
“The Life of Water” (2011) interprets the power of water on canvas through abstracted imagery of waves, waterfalls, rain and wild seas.
“The Life of Fire” (2012) celebrates the creative force that explodes from the most destructive element with experimental textures that range from 3-dimensional layers of canvas to thin plastics and transparencies.
“The Life of Air” (2013) experiments further using transparencies that transcend the form, with paintings on silk where the motion of air flows through multi-layered abstract images.
In previous works, “The Seekers Series” of scrolls and “The Sepia Series” of landscapes depict places that do not exist in the material world but resonate in the language of the mind. Using a stain technique on raw linen in a muted palette, those earlier series also reach for order amidst wilderness, an underlying balance in the universe.
