syzygy, from philosopher solovyov's concept to denote a "close union". much happening, starting at the bottom edge, a row of trees, the remainder just sky. and WHAT a sky! birds, clouds, stars, plants. viewports into other worlds. how did this happen? layers and time. fluorescent and metallic pigments always show better in real life than in photos. sides also layered; white over dark with some run over. painted on quality wood stretched canvas.
i've been exploring colors, ideas, textures, themes of japanese art since my childhood there, and been merging it with my education of modern, western, abstract aesthetics. i majored in industrial design at the rhode island school of design, where the risd approach to all aspects of "the arts" is a major influence. the other major influence was growing up with a mother who teaches painting.
