Blaze has many faces, literally. This was painted during a cosmic kind of space phase I went through. My focus was on time, space, energy, a black hole, and relativity. All this mixed in with an explosive eclipse of solar gases, Finally we arrive at the mere fact this is an abstract, what do you see? That was my interpretation, doesn't have to be yours. I have this painting hanging on the main floor of my house and I constantly find myself staring at it, and seeing a multitude of different things deep in the painting. It's a been a favorite.
I stumbled into painting some would say late in life, yet I had always searched for a positive way to express myself, however fleeting. Painting rapidly became an obsession as I soon realized that what I had been looking for wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This creative means of expression didn’t have to be beautiful and it certainly didn’t have to make sense. It was most often spontaneous, surreal, and subconscious. This style of painting as I now understand it has been vividly explored and technically termed as Abstract Expressionism. However, painting in the moment is whatever I need it to be, regardless of the term. I do not feel the need to follow any artistic rules or format as this would cross grain dramatically with what I am trying to accomplish with my art.
