While I mainly paint plant life and landscapes, such scenery is born into existence with its beauty fully formed and needs no human intervention.
As such, there is little meaning in my choosing to paint such motifs as they are.
If we accept that the randomness and irregularity of nature are the source of its beauty, then it is my belief that removal of that randomness, organization into patterned motifs and simple shapes, can lead to something even more refined.
It is that which I seek.
If my work deeply touches the hearts of those who view it, that is the most joyful thing for myself as an artist, and my sustenance.
Dandelion fluff as the subject for "Rising Light," my work presented here, symbolizes "leaving the nest."
In that sense, I imbued this work with a feeling of support for new departures and new leaps.
