Breathe in, Breathe Out
Acrylic & ink on canvas, 30x22
The recent fires in the Amazon rain forest and possible lifted restrictions on the largest temperate forest in the world, the Tongass national forest, weigh deeply among many other issues challenging our planet. While on the journey of making this piece, as I often do, I infused my thoughts with paying attention to breath, breathing in…breathing out…really tuning in to my breath and envisioning the Amazon and Tongass Forest.
and their relationship to our planet and all of our lives.
Envisioning fresh air, green and lush spaces, love and beauty We don’t need to be loosing more trees and natural habitats, home to millions of animal and plant life.
Swaying thoughts and energies toward solutions and hope is how I choose to steer my art.
I inject my work with tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my iconography. This process of “organizing chaos” is intrinsic and cathartic, and visibly creates stability in my work.
