About The Artwork

I dwell in the myth world as much as possible. This has all sorts of permutations; it is not about play-acting what was written down long ago. Aphrodite Ourania, here in this painting, is a strong, energetic woman dancing with cranes at night in Her season, Spring. I cannot summon Aphrodite into a painting, I have to wait until she appears in a vision, and then put all other projects aside to work on that while I can still see it clearly. If I simply paint a form and call it Aphrodite, the painting itself will have no life in it; it would be stillborn, so to speak. She rarely appears to me, less than once a year, so any image captured of her is rare and vibrant. I've sensed this particular painting hovering just out of sight for about 8 years, since painting another inspired image of her. I kept that earlier painting hanging where I can see it upon awakening all that time, as an invitation, and finally there she was one early spring morning, in my mind's eye. This painting is professionally framed in hand-tinted (by the artist) wood.

The motives underlying all my paintings are both current and timeless: our common need for sustenance, beauty, and grace. Humans have not changed dramatically since we first appeared and I look for threads of continuity, aiming to make imagery that’s rooted in the mythic, the mystic, and the cycles of Nature. Paintings of vessels, birds, plant life, and human figures are cast as aspects of an elusive yet inviting sanctuary. Frequently the images are rooted in the remnants of ancient cultures, both tangible and oral, but they are always responding to our current world as well. Concurrent with my professional art practice, soon after completing a dual major in fine art and philosophy, I was also an organic farmer from 1988-2017 largely occupied with goats and with effecting alchemical transformations of milk and plants. Those decades of raw, ever-precarious, thoughtful farm experience resonate throughout the artwork, testifying to the cycles & perils of life for all sentient beings, humans included.
