This abstract geometric composition is an active color study, a test in faux 3-D, a shape shaman, an Art Deco imbibed, towering soldier-like figure. It's about backlighting the mind and seeing what's there, connecting separations, radiating rays...

If You Stay Still

(includes crating & shipping)
SOLD

An abstract composition of geometric shapes and white diamonds in line work. Inspired by Moroccan and Berber motifs on woven rugs. The symbol of the rug can mean quieting, coming to pray, to sit with the self, to be still. Can you do it?

Matte metallic antique gold, hot coral, and yellow ochre radiate energy. The stripes leading out the top edge of the canvas indicate extension beyond the pictureplane.

There is No Less Alchemy Now

acrylic on canvas
40 x 30 x 2 inches
purchase

This abstract, geometric composition resembles a windmill, with a side view and schematic lines as well. The mechanism of the spinning windmill that converts the energy of wind into rotational energy can be viewed as an offshoot of alchemy. Windmills today seem antiquated, just as the idea of alchemy. The title, "There is No Less Alchemy Now," is about realizing that magic happens in this time and is not some dreamy abstract relic of an idea from the past.

The bronze/antique gold shapes are a matte metallic.

This painting eventually evolved to resemble part of the moon suspended in an arcing cosmos of stark black and white. The stack of "boxes" along the left side of the canvas signifies the compulsion to order things, to try and make sense of the abounding paradoxes in life. There's also a large, black tribal-like, shape that serves to root the work. The title "Holding Water" is about our intuition and the sensation of knowing without necessarily being able to explain. It's a peaceful groundless space buoyed by self-trust. On the right side of the canvas is a light pink feminine form resembling a cut out from an angled dress pattern.

The "seed" contains black and white, the unknown and known, confusion and clarity--surrounded by shells of colors that seem to be rotating in different directions. A white ladder leads upward or downward? There are supportive and protective "beams" that shelter the ripening potential. The thick gold bars provide balance and warmth. The thin black line that angles at the bottom of the picture plane hints at another dimension. The title "The Strange Pull" references the tendency to be drawn to what we love, again and again--even if we don't quite know why.

This painting is an abstract rendition of a light bulb type object that doesn't make perfect sense. The connecting black curving lines create a circuitry that dips into the watery deep blues. It is a metaphor for the long awaited illumination that is the gift of loss.
