The physical world is made of physical elements; therefore, the spiritual
world must be comprised of spiritual elements.  Bridges exist as evidence
of the parallels between these dimensions, such as thought existing
simultaneously as physical and spiritual
The spiritual world is a place where psychological responses are the essence
of matter, like an alternate reality or a parallel universe where the periodic
table is replaced with  thoughts and emotions. Collective mental processes
are translated into symbolic depictions using color, symbolism, line, and
shape, by replacing the non-physical fundamental matter.
The Ebb and Flow of Joyous Love - 72" x 48"
"Curious Intellect Choked on Itself"
acrylic on panel - 24"x24"
Based on my emotional perceptions, I am communicating intangible
experiences through the symbolism of color and intensity of mark making. I
use an understanding of layering from my printmaking background, the
potentially spontaneous mark making capabilities of painting, and the
inherent qualities of paint as a medium to produce a visual language that
depicts a personal, fragmented delineation of the spiritual world.
"Death of a Loved One"
mixed media on paper - 22"x30"
