After an extended hiatus I returned to painting in 2021 making new works on wood panel in acrylic with a lot of layers and excavation. My previous work was all in oil on canvas or paper. It often contained conical forms which are very powerful symbols for me. Their downward point being a metaphor for our bodies swirling with energy while moving through life balanced on tiny feet. When up they're like the sacred mountain or a gesture towards other dimensions.
