Artist Statement

My work is a series of studies and meditations about transition, transformation, and the enigma of form becoming energy and the way that new form is manifested both within the self and in the outer world.

These paintings focus on specific energy centers (chakras) located in the core of the body and on the effort to maintain balance while existing in a constant state of flux.

The triptych format connotes ideas of connectivity, flexibility, and interaction. The paintings may be displayed in numerous ways; i.e., single-panel, diptych, triptych, composite, and serial formats are options, and either a vertical or a horizontal orientation may be selected.
