Fresh From The Wormhole

Fresh From The Wormhole

"Fresh From The Wormhole" briefly captures forms that dwell in the spaces between, between vast distances of both time and space and between the laws of logic we know and those we don’t. In truth, they reside all around us, but remain unseen by human eyes.
Officially known as an Einstein–Rosen bridge, a wormhole is a hypothetical topological feature of spacetime that would fundamentally be a shortcut through both space and time.
This piece taps into my fascination with the strange and fantastic, reflected in my lifelong love of imaginative literature, the best of which transports the reader beyond the limits of natural law as we know it to behold or experience “the other”.

The Procession Moves On

The Procession Moves On

"The Procession Moves On" was inspired by a Dead Can Dance song called "The Carnival is Over". Driven by a strange desire, the forms depart after the briefest of stays. Some great, unknown intention is afoot as they move inexorably on.
I have been a practicing Buddhist for many years. As such it is good to remind ourselves often of our motivations and desires, which strongly dictate our actions, usually to greater degrees than we are aware of.

Rain Song

Rain Song

"Rain Song" explores movement, mood, and music. Oblivious to danger, the indeterminate forms move to the rhythm of equally mysterious melodies, all the while reveling in the downpour.
The imagery and composition of this piece spring from my love of classic jazz and improvisational music. My aim in Rain Song is to tap into the universal, primal response to music that we all share.

Dreams Made Flesh

Dreams Made Flesh

This piece is all about the imaginary world and the "real" world, and how things cross over between the two. Just as I as artist worked to make these imaginary forms real through paint and surface, the forms themselves work to make manifest what they are to the eyes and minds of those who will but look and see.
Part of the human condition is the need to make sense of the world around around us. We look at abstract forms with the question, “what is it?”, wanting to fit it into a preconceived idea. Sometimes, it is best to simply let them be what they are.

The Arrival and The Reunion

The Arrival and The Reunion

The title "The Arrival and The Reunion" was taken from a Dead Can Dance song of the same name, and explores the forces of attraction and repulsion. Two clusters of disparate, multifarious forms come together after a long separation. What tore them asunder is as mysterious as what reunites them.
Like most artists, I listen to music while I work, and one of my favorite groups is Dead Can Dance. Their music evokes a profound sense of loss and longing, hints of which inevitably find their way into my paintings.

Dancers in the Afterglow

Dancers in the Afterglow

The figures dance and cavort in the wake of some great event already lost to memory.
The title for this painting was taken from a novel by Jack L. Chalker (one of my favorite sci-fi writers of that time) that I read back in the 80's. The painting has nothing to do with the story. Upon completing the piece, the title popped to mind as perfectly evocative of the movement, energy and rhythm of the figures and colors.

Keepers of The Flame

Keepers of The Flame

Like other recent work, this painting was layered again and again until I was happy with it. The layering process itself adds to the richness of the surface. The resulting image is one of abstract forms honoring and keeping the sacred flames that give them life and being.

The Moon Pool

The Moon Pool

Like ourselves throughout life, this painting morphed into something almost unrecognizable from it's early stages. Through a combination of layering and changing up the figure-ground relationships, I eventually arrived at an image satisfyingly evocative of otherworldly mystery.
The title is the same as that of an early science fiction/fantasy story written by Abraham Merritt. The painting has nothing to do directly with the story, but when I had finished it, the story's title sprang to mind as perfectly evoking a focus of mysterious power, around which the figures hover.
