Brick by Brick

Brick by Brick, Acrylic on Canvas, 36H x 24W

When the impermanence of the human condition is what made the Gods jealous, shouldn’t we build and rebuild our hopes and dreams in as many colors and as many textures as we can? Construct and reconstruct, tear down and build again, because the impermanent joy of building is what makes life precious, the permanence of completion is an illusion.

Forests of Green and Gold

Forests of Green and Gold, Acrylic on Canvas, 12H x 16W

The beauty and symmetry of nature one sees in a forest bathed in green and gold can only be marveled at.The deep but subtle hues, the many textures, the depth of green all around is a sight to breathe in that does wondrous things to the soul. Perhaps we should never attempt to describe it, only revel in it as nature intended.

Where the Roads don’t Meet (not available)

Where the Roads don’t Meet, Acrylic on Canvas, 12H x 16W

This painting captures the mood of an inner search that is fraught with interruptions, a journey where the roads start and end with interruptions and do not often meet.The struggle lies in choosing the roads to take and the paths to not, knowing full well that in this transformative process the journey you start will not be the journey you end with.

High Noon Dreams

High Noon Dreams, Acrylic on Canvas and Cardboard, 24H x 30W

You find yourself in the middle of a dream, you are taking a walk in the park with the sun at its zenith, where everywhere you see it is green and fresh.You wake up, look out the window; it is high noon and the day is still young!

Thunderstorms (not available)

Acrylic on Canvas, 30W x 40H

The emotion this painting inspires in me is the power and the beauty of thunderstorms that rage both within the mind as well as outside of it. Its inherent nature remains the same; where the separate beauty of the wind howling in the trees, the lashing rain, the thunder and lightning yet cannot account for its majestic beauty and cannot account for the order in its chaos.

Submerged

Acrylic on Canvas and Cardboard,  18W x 24H

This painting reflects upon the inevitability of creation followed by destruction and where ashes to ashes and dust to dust must follow.Even great cities and civilizations that interpret and reinterpret the goals of life and living have to give way and submerge into the multiple layers of fossilized time.

The Artist, Acrylic on Canvas, 30W x 36H

The inspiration behind this painting is the creative process itself for any artist that can mean influences that might start as chaos and gradually find order within the ‘blank page’ or the ‘tabula rasa’ of the mind.For a writer it may mean the struggle with a blank page, for a painter the synesthetic discoveries and for yet another artist just the process of distilling the core out of the swirling thoughts in the mind.
