Being Series Statement

This work is an investigation of Being.  It examines the nature of change, while considering a context that remains constant.

On the right side of the paintings I abstract from my interpretation of natural processes.  I am interested in the inefficient relationships of growth and change that occur in a dynamic environment.  I demonstrate the accumulation of reactions between evolving forms.  Areas of activity build upon and overtake one another, resulting in layers of events that leave evidence of the history of their formation.

On the left side I am abstracting an unchanging and fundamental creative energy.  This knowable, yet intangible and unobservable vital force is the source and result of the temporal processes it is being paired with.

The paintings present two separate ways of thinking about what is essentially the same energy.  My intention is that the two concepts merge into a single unified contemplation of physical and spiritual awareness.
