This Thin Section series is really going places now. I love the movement and energy in this painting. It is a swirling vortex of color. I love those pale yellow dots and how they pop out of the pools of red and turquoise.
My work is an exploration of the physical and spiritual nature of life expressed in color and movement. I believe the purpose of art is to help man find his place in the universe, and I consider a painting a success if it has that spiritual quality that draws people into a state of meditative contemplation. My work is meant to be evocative rather than representational. I want to engage the viewer and bring to the surface the same sense of wonder you might get by looking at a sunset, the northern lights, a coral reef, or a star-filled sky. This language of imagery has impressed itself upon me and it informs my visual lexicon. My paintings are composed without linguistic thought; there are no words running through my head. The process is deeply subliminal. It is my goal to communicate with the viewer on that subconscious level.
