“Art is the essence of life. In every action we are creating with or without the canvas or chosen tools. Each moment of life is art.” After spending many years questioning, analyzing, and examining my process I am continually amazed at the depth of discovery. The balance between being in the moment and finding the truth is the secret sauce to reveal the wisdom within. Whether I am painting or photographing I believe our intentions reveal the creative spark, a direct current to the conception of creation. I am grateful to shine the light on and honor my mentor Dragan Dragic. When he took me under his wing in 1999, I began to understand the contemplative nature of art. The plethora of ideas churn as I reach deep into the texture and palette.
Art is immortal and when the floodgates of spirituality and neuroplasticity are opened the visions can be delicate and rewarding. The truth about abstract art is in the magic and mystery of form and the elegance of its nature. Time and space require patience when you metabolize your concepts and idea into the work. There is a shadow contained inside each stroke. One rarely sees it, but in the forever changing grid we operate within, the shadow reveals much more than what the eye perceives. This is the destiny of art, revealing something beyond sound, beyond thinking or believing. It is a revelation into the beauty of our forever changing world as we are the witness. Art creates a mirror for others to share a glimpse into tragedy and redemption no matter what form it takes. Perception plays another key role in the underlying value of abstract or contemporary art. If the viewer has an expectation and wishes to judge based on their own values, checks and balances, it might not allow the essence of the work to be understood. Thus, the delicate task of the artist is to engage the spirit of the viewer and offer a collaboration. My hope is to share in the voyage with each canvas as it is my journey alone.
For those who walk along side with me, I can only wish they will see the beauty within themselves.”
