This work is about making space for the voice of spirit. The language of form in these paintings connects the dots to the spiritual realm through the energy of all things physical.

Energy is the bridge between the physical and the spiritual. Light, particularly, calls our senses to the presence of that which is metaphysical.

CITYarts Mural: Always in Bloom

Over the months of July and August, I'm working with a group of high school students in revitalizing the school garden at 84th and Amsterdam in New York City. We're painting a 15 x 40' mural, designed collaboratively with the students of Urban Assembly for Green Careers. The project also includes replacing the covering for the koi pond. The mural will be dedicated in September. Below is the plan. My excellent crew work hard every day, including the ladies (aka, chickens) of the garden. Get it touch if you'd like to volunteer at the mural. 

Stay tuned for updates.

Above: Matter Unfolding

20" diameter, oil paint, mica, Venetian plaster on Yupo with 23k gold mounted on panel, .5" thick. $2,000.

From the curatorial statement:

We are privileged to live at a moment when a new story is being written about how we understand ourselves in the world. The old story said we were all separate from one another; even our bodies separate from our minds. The new story is revealing something quite different....

......We show up for the world. We embody, embed, extend, and enact. We are an ecological psychology. And like the octopus with cognition centers scattered throughout its body (each arm has it's own "brain") our cognitive apparatus is also distributed among our sensual capacities.

What does all this have to do with the visual language? For a long time, we believed the experience of the visual language was located in the brain. As with the new story, we are re-membering the sensual delight of experiencing visual art. Though primarily visual, this experience manifests in all our senses. We show up for the world when we expand our understanding of this broad-based experience. The rich network of sensual delights present in this mix of work does what all masterful artwork accomplishes: it shows up for the world, as the world shows up for it.

Above: Gate of Thanatos, 30" diameter, oil with mica and Venetian plaster on yupomounted on panel, $2,850.

This work is part of a new exhibit at Artsy.net, Thinly and Thickly, organized and curated by Deborah Barlow. From her curatorial statement:

One of the reasons paint has had such longstanding appeal as a medium is that it is spectacularly responsive. From the translucent veils of color flowing across a Helen Frankenthaler canvas to the densely textured impasto of Claude Monet’s water lilies, paint speaks in the parlances of thin and thick, transparent and opaque, free flowing and controlled.

And while these terms describe how paint is applied to a surface, thick and thin can also suggest the aura that a work possesses. Some art has a presence that feels diaphanous and thin, leaning into what feels permeable, numinous and ephemeral.

Earendel's Neighborhood

17" diameter, mica with Venetian plaster on Yupo with 22k moon gold, mounted on panel, $2,000.

Find this painting as part of Fluid Media's new exhibition, The Call Away.
The show is at Artsy.net.
Organized and curated by John Cox and Alison Cuomo.

From the curatorial statement:
There are two distinct threads of art making, and artwork, that are each connected to the deep capacity we have to recognize – to re-member, and re-connect phenomena within our perceptual systems. These are our capacity to imagine; and the capacity of our perceptual system to connect us to our physical world. Art making and experiencing artwork build a unification of imagination and perception, creating recognition that easily calls us elsewhere.
While the work ranges from abstraction to representation, the content achieves its power of connectivity in the same manner. Our imagination works hand-in-hand with our perception; a recognition happens, and we too, are called away.

An Idiosyncratic Studio Visit
Over 4 short episodes, I narrate an exploration of my work across 30+ years. This project illuminates connecting ideas and processes that have shaped the continued development of my work. It identifies key influences and collaborators. The project is idiosyncratic in that it is not meant to be comprehensive, nor overarching. It is a view into an artist's thought process, and how this shapes the work.

All 4 parts are now on YouTube: Click the box to see all 4 episodes. 

Total run time 14 minutes.
