About the Art

Sea of Days

I’m drawn towards nature imagery that depicts isolated elements in their continual struggle to flourish under desolate circumstances.  The seemingly bleak, the empty landscape, speaks to me.  It is in this silence that I see the never-ending waves of struggle, wearing down, and  rebirth emerging.  

The process of endless building and reconfiguring transcends the mere physical and encompasses the spiritual and symbolic.  The scars and flowers of experience against a backdrop of an endless sea of days transform into a tiny glimpse of what Heaven might be.  In what some see as mere desolation I find a spark of the sublime, a release into a quiet revelry, and a peace that covers it all.

By making paintings and constructions, I take part in a restoration process.  It is an act of reclamation and pressing onward.
