Oil on Linen
My paintings are often called abstractions, they are not. They are the non-objective landscapes of my inner being, my attempt to move into a greater reality. Bodidharma, the bringer of Zen to China from India said, "Using the mind to look for reality is delusion. Not using the mind to look for reality is awareness. Freeing oneself from words is liberation."
The series of paintings titled "In the Garden of Eden" represents the biblical garden. Joseph Campbell referred to Garden as the place of the historical rejection of the Mother Goddess. He wrote, "Our fall in the Garden sees nature as corrupt, and that myth corrupts the whole world for us. Every spontaneous act is seen as sinful and must not be yield to."
