This is Alchemy
2013 – 2015
To continually push the limits of our creative ability, barriers must be broken down. At the point we find ourselves crossing the barriers, we experience a kind of alchemy. On the canvas, ingredients and procedures align to create something beyond explanation. When rendered correctly we walk away with more than we started with. I am using wine as a metaphor for this alchemical process. In the same way wine affects our decisions, our creative process must sometimes be frivolous in order to break down those barriers. These paintings convey us free of sober thoughts, aware of a more living expression.
