The Finite Province of Meaning constitutes my Magnum opus in thinking and practice. Aesthetic experience is the phenomenon that generates and heightens the encounter between viewer and art object; it reflects a dimension in our psychology that precedes word usage. The entirety of this series is geared to that moment of encounter because I believe that painting is not just an object we look "at" but something we also look "through", coming close to sharing the same creative space as the artist( or at least in a certain sense, participating in that creativity). The aesthetic experience is as much about how we occupy and augment time and space as it is about increasing perception and thought. There is an aspect of the stage quality within The Finite Province of Meaning but it is actually more of an altar, those societal arenas that generate a place for religious ceremony and methodology of rites. The irony about realizing the entirety of Finite Province is that before I was able to bring this work to completion, both formally and conceptually, the series of sculptures titled "Guardians of the Finite Province" had to be made first...... as if some sort of protector of the creative self had to be in place before I can lay claim to a unique manifestation about painting. The "Guardians" are talismans acting as gate keepers to the "Finite Province" . I needed to expand the formal space of painting in order to better articulate what painting means to me, both in its versatility in creating meaning and in its ability to intensify experience.
