Gather / Shatter

Surging, 22" x 15", 1998

Surging, 22″ x 15″, 1998

 

These paintings spring from a passionate, purposeful, playful dialogue with the natural world and what humans have wrought with it ~ as hunter-gatherers, agriculturalists, industrialists, and technologists. May they be reflective and provocative, as well as connecting and inspiring:

 

 Echoing the continuous cycles of the Universe,
they spin and sing the spectrum of
order and chaos
energy and entropy
gathering / scattering
scattering / shattering
clustering / releasing

 

Medium: Watercolor, inks, pastel, found papers, curious items found by chance, and familiar symbols.  All gather together, collide, coalesce, combust, and transform into a new whole.
