Abstract Series

My evolving series of abstract paintings are cosmocentric, interpreting man and art as an integral part of nature. These concepts are based on Buddhist philosophy and works with an intention of equanimity that is neither a thought nor an emotion. In Buddhism, equanimity (upekkh, upekṣh) is one of the four immeasurables. It is considered the steady conscious realization of reality’s transience. While some may think of equanimity as dry neutrality or cool aloofness, mature equanimity produces a radiance and warmth of being.

I see this series are a developing continuum of connections. Each stroke builds upon the other producing a radiance and warmth of being. The layers of each work suggest a complex interconnectivity of man’s own marking with nature. With this approach, a unique network of color and organic lines develop a contenporary language defining the nature of man’s own being.

Figure Paintings

Relying on well-known images of man and women in the context of pop art, I have pulled together elements from mainstream aesthetics, both past and present, to address transpersonal relationships we have to select images. By juxtaposing the sense of identity with text from newspapers and textiles that speak of the social cultural of various decades and cultures, these paintings attempt to make sense of the world encompassing a wider aspect of humankind and the psyche.
