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 Soliloquy Of Stranger (Straliloquy). Acrylic on canvas. 72in x 72in. If you look closely, you may see an exalted figure illuminated in the center of the painting. It is a winged stranger discovering her voice as her energy cycles in and out perpetually.

“Reconstruction of the Chimera (Zachericle)” tells the story of the mythological phoenix while also incorporating personal narrative elements and concepts of the ouroboros & chimera. Created during my 2012 artist residency, it was inspired by a young man named Zach. Zach would stop by on a daily basis to grab a piece of candy from the bucket I left by the door for those passing by. One day, Zach decided to step in a little further than usual which led to a deeper conversation. I handed Zach a print of my work for stopping by, at which point tears welled up in his eyes. It was at that time that Zach told me he had been living on the street and was just accepted into a program where he would have a bed to sleep for the first time in a long time. My print, he said, was one of the only things in his possession that he could call his own, and the first thing for him to hang above his bed. By the time I finished this painting, Zach had stopped coming by. I don’t believe he ever saw it and hopefully that’s because he’s doing well. Sometimes we just need a chance to start over.

Featured: Reconstruction of the Chimera (Zachericle). Acrylic, Ash, and Cut Painting on Canvas. 60 x 60. 2012. The ashes in this piece are from a painting I burned titled “The Transmutation of Miss-Tere” and the cut fragments are from a piece titled “Sacrifices and Second Chances (The Day Eye Made The Devil Blink).”

Really bummed I don’t have the resources to participate in the 10 year anniversary of Art San Diego but very thankful to be there the past two years. I know when Art San Diego first started a decade ago, it was a big goal of mine to one day show my work there and I found a way to do it twice. It’s going to be a great show this year so make sure you check it out 🎨

“Chasing The Gate (Searching For Deanne)…

“Chasing The Gate (Searching For Deanne)” reflects feelings of anxiety, depression, and glimmers of hope as it highlights the disappearance of my best friend and muse, Deanne Hastings, several years ago. I always hear that time heals all but time doesn’t make it easier…it just gives you longer to think about where she is and what happened to her. This painting depicts a long quest to find her and meeting her at the gateway of heaven.
