The Unresolved Chord I
The Unresolved Chord I

"The Unresolved Chord is a deconstructed abstraction of what I hear when a guitar chord or progression is played.  Like a chord that is unresolved or has not completed its loop, each of the 20 layers in this painting only go three-quarters around the canvas, then stop. When you look at the piece, your eye subconsciously catches the next layer, and your eye continues around the entirety of the piece, providing a powerful continuity in movement and texture. The observer gets a multi-sensory experience that transcends the visual and taps into deeper layers of our mind."

All living things move in flocks. Understanding the migration patterns of living things, can teach us just as much about our selves, as it can about the herds we ride with, evolve from and transform into.

Zara
Zara

"Among the first biblical figures to emerge, Zara is the deliberately gender-neutral reference used in this piece. More commonly known as Zoroaster, he lived in the time of the Buddha and espoused two important tenants of human connection: the power of truth, and the power of free will. Free Will is a fragile gift requiring careful balance and centering, just as Zara is often depicted as floating through the ether, as he is here. The forces of truth over deception are the counter-forces the swirl around him, like one in a meditative balance in the high of a hurricane."

"The strongest family tree seamlessly connects the earth to the sky.

The Southern Torch
The Southern Torch

The Southern Torch

Collection of Mr. Aby Rosen & The Gramercy Park Hotel, NYC.

"This painting is an abstraction of the view from the south side of the Terrace view from the Gramercy Park at sunset. Looking south, the sun is in the sky longer, leaving a rich series of pinks and light hues in the sky as the sun sets. The view to the south is also a perfectly balanced contrast with the northern view, with the village and many shorter buildings fielding the landscape with the horizontal lines capturing the fixed neighborhood feel. What might be most remarkable, is that fact that just before Sunset every evening, the angle of the sun, causes the Freedom Tower to light up like a Golden Torch, that is the perfect view from the roof the Gramercy Park."

Gorilla

"We are the kings and queens of our own Jungles. The Gorilla sees the sun cut through the tree tops, and blends life from its pure greens down to the forest floor where Ants and Apes alike are all apart of the layered circle of life — a never ending cycle of carbon, water, dirt and air. We are all animals in our own jungles, whether jungles of trees or concrete, and we all fight to survive and thrive."

"We are greater than the sum of our parts. As each layer of a relationship builds on the layer beneath, we create a dynamic that are the peaks and valleys that form the texture of love. At our peaks in time, we teniously reach higher than we thought we could before. At our ebb, we are not lower but relaxed, pondering the next peak, without losing sight of our original intent. Each layer of the painting is derived from a memory through interviews of the subjects -- what was learned through this process over 20 layers, is that in the joining of parts between two systems, is that we reflect the way we love ourselves by the way we love our other, and the strongest balances are forged in mutual admiration."

The end point in the journey where all energy converges to, the pillars of our lives hold together a fragile balance.

Before energies, ideas and peoples can converge, there is often a period of separation and distance before synthesis.

All events that come to rest start in a place of chaos, without the end in sight. All the elements are separate and waiting to interact, and react.

Collection of Mr. Aby Rosen & The Gramercy Park Hotel, NYC.

"This painting is an abstraction of the north side of the Terrace view from the Gramercy Park at sunset. The tilted angle of Manhattan means that the North side of the terrace sees a quicker darkening of the sky, bringing to light rich purples and blues that dominate the sky. The skyline is also a perfect contrast to the southern view, with the northern view capturing Midtown and high-rises continuously constructing and evolving. The vertical lines in this painting represent the construction columns, and the gold that illuminates the different windows show the surrounding neighborhood coming to life at night."
