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.
