This painting eventually evolved to resemble part of the moon suspended in an arcing cosmos of stark black and white. The stack of "boxes" along the left side of the canvas signifies the compulsion to order things, to try and make sense of the abounding paradoxes in life. There's also a large, black tribal-like, shape that serves to root the work. The title "Holding Water" is about our intuition and the sensation of knowing without necessarily being able to explain. It's a peaceful groundless space buoyed by self-trust. On the right side of the canvas is a light pink feminine form resembling a cut out from an angled dress pattern. There's an overall harmony in the marriage of cosmic and architectural; round and grid-like; blue and pink; black and white; stacked and floating.

My work is about the suspension of reason or rationality as one might experience in ceremony, dance, or theatrics—an agreement to open one’s self to transcendence, the realization of fantasy, the acceptance of the tragic, absurd or paradoxical. Often aided by costume, mask, or symbols, these states of mind allow us to edge closer to a shared soulspeak, and in doing so we are changed and healed. My paintings include hints of two-dimensional icons, stained glass windows, ceremonial objects, carnivalesque paraphernalia, dressmaker pattern pieces, and carefully designed altars. A final piece may resemble a long built-upon place of gathering, a strange alchemical device, a crude vessel, a protector, a fortune teller, or a shamanic robe--all of which shepherd the process of transformation. I am further inspired by the decadence of Art Deco; the hope and efficiency of Mid-Century aesthetics; the joining of texture, light and comfort in interior design; the riotous maximalism in haute couture; the rawness of tribal mark making; and the implied doorway to the unseen in esoteric symbology. All of these influences are cradled in deep investigations into color, particularly its role as a visual phenomenon and catalyst for sparking feeling and narrative.
