These paintings are about the way thought and emotion color the quality and content of our perceptions. The conical form is a very powerful symbol for me. With the point down, it is a metaphor for our bodies swirling with energy while moving through life balanced on tiny feet. Pointed up, it symbolizes the sacred mountain or a gesture toward other dimensions.The paintings are created in a very high-energy, spontaneous process that becomes an intimate giving and receiving dialogue with the surface. As a result, they remain interesting very close up or at a distance.
