“Traces of the Cosmos”
My universe-inspired series are dwarfed by their subject matter! This is my second series inspired by the cosmos. After the first one, I had planned on “returning” to earth. However, one morning I woke up with a vision of a second series. It was so compelling that I immediately let go of all other plans. It was an exhilarating exploration. I aimed in this series to intuitively respond to all I’ve been learning about the universe and my sense of awe and mystery. Color exploration is a big part of my work. I found that many shapes which my hand and mind like to make are embodied in the curves of the universe. I also realized it was time to try to weave together two of my joint interests, art and science/medicine, and discover how they interrelated with each other. Meditations on perspective and connection, including humans and the rest of the universe, also found their way into many of my paintings.
