Continuing to focus on the energy, rhythm, and purest nature of the natural subject at hand, this painting represents an extremely vibrant and exuberant turn in the Field series. As one of the largest paintings to date in this exploration, it exhibits the emergence of blooming color and life that slowly reveals itself when nature is at its most elegant. When plants break free from their seeds, still hidden in the dirt, it is in a way that always maintains a certain poetic mystery and hints towards the unassailable and beautiful structure that underlies all beauty and creation in nature. It is this deep vibration in nature that is accessible to us that inspires the Field series. It begins intuitively, even below consciousness, and our experience of beauty and art creates the surfaces on which these connections emerge and dance.
