Subtlety can be the difference between a good work of art and a great one! These beautiful works are absolutely breathtaking in person and have the ability to transform any space. This series gives collectors the chance to own work from an epic master…an artist that is collected and commissioned worldwide. The following is an excerpt from his artist statement…I believe in the cathartic, even redemptive power of beauty-even terrible beauty, insofar as it has the ability to still mental chatter and ground the artist and the viewer. Beauty is, to me, found when the mind reaches its end point, when prior experience has no correlate in the present. To engage this aspiration, as a painter, I court images that are not previously known or named, in passages that hint at luminous sources often behind “the thicket” of confusion, unresolved flux and serendipity. I want to make the work a thing in the world without referent; an image that is not “about” in any sense but instead is transcendent while paradoxically and emphatically present; a new aspect of the natural world infused with the human hand, eye and mind. I conceive of the artist as a disrupter (of the stiffness of spirit that our habitual ways of thinking and perceiving makes us) but also as a healer and a magician of perception. While the analytic mind taxonomically divides and names, through painting I seek to put things back together again.
