My Artists Statement:
Art of the Covenant
Art is either alive or it isn’t. Art cannot be conveniently pinned down or demystified precisely because it is metaphysical: if its creation is magic, then the art is magic.
My art comes directly from my soul. The soul is the magic window into the Cosmic Psyche—the source of all creation, material reality, the field of all possibilities ... God.
My art making is based on the physical flow of spontaneous intuition, which involves a remarkable journey. Impulses of energy and information surge down my arm and, through improvisation, I compose visual jazz with line and color. My paintings and drawings are confirmation of a universal mythology of dreams within dreams—timeless images taken through the lens of my life experience. Unfettered from premeditated ideas, I create from a depth of intelligent feeling that establishes evidence of the Spirit in Art, and transcendence in the physical world.
Everyone sees and feels in a unique way; that’s why no two people are precisely the same. If you see or feel something in a work of art ... it is there! As one needs to learn how to read the written word, one must also have the desire to understand the language of art, and the alphabet of a particular artist.
I create confidently on a faith borne of knowing—not believing. I do so with an agreement to accept that intuitive guidance fearlessly. Create means original; creation is not the reproduction or rearrangement of existential facts—that which already exists. When I finish a piece I—like the spectator—am seeing it for the first time.
Humility is the artists ally.»
