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."

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."

"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."

Tree of Life
Tree of Life

"The strongest family tree seamlessly connects the earth to the sky. Drawing from grounded wisdom, while reaching high into the sky for new breath, this tree is composed of two halves, each balancing and supporting the other. The taller tree sways more in the wind, and relies on the balance provided by its branches that wrap itself around the world. This painting is composed of 34 layers, each layer representing the journey of a seed from dry earth, to fertile land, to bloom, and finally into balance.."

Gorilla
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."

Unresolved Chord IV
Unresolved Chord IV

"A symphony is an army. With layers of tactics and elements that strategically grip us, leaving us bewildered, exhilarated, and wiser. The layers of this painting are based on the layers that form the unfolding of a song, settled, then rising, settled then rising."

The Chain (Alchemy XIV)
The Chain (Alchemy XIV)

"We can step outside the food chain, but we can never break it. The balance formed by the cycle of life and carbon that turn black into green, green into red, then red back to black. But over the many layers of this process, we do not see just dirt, bloom and blood, but rather the ecosystem whose beauty goes beyond the short memory of its violence."
