I have always been attracted to the immediacy of Nature, bearing witness to the extraordinary and yet, subtle aliveness and movement happening all around us. In this new series of paintings, I abandon old ways of seeing and explore new ways to see the world around me and express it through paint. My intention is to breakdown clouds into loose deliberate expressive brushstrokes. The stroke is the action, the aliveness, embedded with feeling. In the clouds you will see an invitation for us to breathe, open up our imaginations and make our realities more expansive.
Clouds are worlds onto themselves. Who of us hasn’t stared up into the sky, imagining shapes of clouds turning into semi-recognizable objects. Always changing, shape-shifting, clouds invite the imagination to run wild and free.
Diving spiritually deeper into clouds as a metaphor... Consciousness is a sunny day and clouds are thoughts. Like clouds on a sunny day, thoughts pass by the mind. Let them pass. Unattached. Un-anchored. Watch the stories created out of thin air...objectified condensed vapors of liquid air. Let them be. No need to think.
