|I just love these pieces. They result from layers of color and shape being worked and reworked with no particular goal in mind, except to catch a spirit. I chose to make the beings more a feeling or reflection of a mood. To me, they all have very distinct personalities, and are as complete as any detailed illustration could ever be.
As we walk through life, we are not just the physical body we occupy. We cast shadows all around us, and visit our reflection on surfaces. The shadows and reflections are as much a part of us, however temporary, as the body we carry. What we really are at any given time is the memory of a physical moment, a snapshot in time.
Man's ongoing struggle with loneliness and longing for meaning are very predominant in these works. These paintings are my attempt to freeze time, leaving the world a reminder of just how fleeting life is, and how amazing the human creature is that experiences it.
All these paintings are mixed media on gallery wraped deep canvas. Finished with protective varnish. Ready to hang with or without framing.
