Artist Statement

                                         

        Circles, squares and triangles, are the building blocks of visual imagery, transform them into globes, orbs, blocks, pyramids, cones and cylinders.  Embellished with light, they take on a sense of being, a sense of belonging within a space.  Add a touch of atmosphere and they begin to float and occupy space within the confines of the canvas.

          Over and above these elements are their spiritual connotations.  A circle, being without beginning or end, conjures up eternity.  A triangle containing in one shape the trinity or triumvirate.  A triangle as a cone or pyramid becomes a channel for energy, both physical and spiritual.  The square, with its four corners, represents the four corners of the earth, and as a cube it is the grounded stability we need and with which to build.

            I have been adding metal leaf and some highly specialized pigments with a transitional quality as elements of “special significance” for the precious nature of our beliefs, our spirituality and our understanding of the universe.  Where one person might find the nature of their God in one piece, another might find the representation of the universe.  Are they all that far apart?
