Inspired by subtle motions in the great outdoors (think: growing grass, blooming flowers, shifting breeze …..) the RHYTHMS series explores our relationships with nature. The RHYTHMS pieces are process based, aligning artist’s flow within movements in nature.
We are literally biologically dependent upon nature. Healing energy is in the sun, the wind, the rain, the cycles… I strive to stay connected to nature and capture an interpretation of nature (both subject matter and process) through this work, and bring an essence of nature indoors via the finished paintings.
Sometimes the process, when left to chance in a stroke, splatter or drip, determine the uniqueness, character and beauty of a painting. Similarly, the stray bloom of a wildflower alters our landscape. I relish the risky moments of flying paint because it reminds me of what it is to be human and part of nature. It is within the flow of authenticity, that character (and original art) surfaces.
