I SEEK TO UNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF BEAUTY AS SEEN IN THE WILD LANDSCAPE OF MOTHER EARTH AND HER INFINITE ABUNDANCE.
There is a deep beauty in the overgrowth of nature, in plant life growing wildly up together; cacti and grasses and wildflowers and creosote all seem so desperately on top of each other, yet there is balance and perfection and a shared source of unity, the earth. Understanding this interconnectedness and shared single source of existence, of consciousness, is the journey I embark on in my creating process. I want to understand the unity of these elements and express the totality of the feeling of being immersed in the abundant and unending flow of life.
With still-life, I have the opportunity to arrange the subject myself, giving me insight into relationships between all organic matter. I carefully select and arrange a variety of organic shapes, colors, and textures to recreate in an arrangement the feeling of interconnected abundance; how different shapes and colors speak to each other in a new way when side by side. In landscapes and nature studies, I have the opportunity to explore nature as it presents itself and express its impression on me through color and mark-making. I am exploring the very heart of beauty, the unrepeatable flow of nature. It is seen in the breaking open of the sky when it rains, the mountain grasses in the wind, the grounding earth-red boulders, or the light bouncing off and through a lemon tree.
I am in love with the pounding vital life force energy that is vibrating all around us and at the same time through us and within us, with an infinite rhythm that leaves you still.
