Pierre Bonnard said: "The relationship between painting and life is not a matter of painting life, but a matter of giving life to a painting."
My work is inspired by nature and my connection to a spiritual reality manifesting itself through forces in nature and life. In my experience the inner landscape mirrors the outer landscape. I try to make visible the invisible through color and lyrical abstractions. Symbolic abstraction develops over time for me as my own personal visual language and proves itself many times archetypal, often to my own surprise. My pieces usually have a source in my life conscious or unconscious as it may be.
this piece is inspired by movent of water, leaves in the wind. the dance of nature.
