As every story has a past, present, and future…

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time.

Featured: The Boy In The Box. 36in x 48in. This is the title painting of the series and the very first from 2011. It was a strong reaction and deviation from “The Up-Side of Down” in regards to the hard edges, geometric shapes, composition, colors, and general aesthetics. Being the very first, it was also one of the loosest and most exploratory pieces of the series. It’s a base of primary colors and it’s as though a curtain is being pulled back to unveil a new day. There is a transitional element of a cube with an angelic figure in it…because change rarely comes in a single day…does it? Change can be hard, even painful, but is often necessary for growth. This series was started to break out of my box, both literally and metaphorically. There have been various stages of success but we are always works in progress. I now cycle back and forth between bodies of work to evaluate that growth and attempt to fill in the gaps and cracks to become whole.
