I’ve added new paintings to my online gallery! They are a continuation of last year’s paintings, which I called “Joy + Passion.” It’s all a continuation I suppose. It started with “Joy,” and has evolved from there.
The “Joy+Passion” abstract painting series is a celebration. It resulted post a season of grief-induced art making. After my loss, I didn’t paint, I couldn’t. Then, getting back into my personal creative work, I found tremendous healing and fresh life there.
This new series utilizes the power of color and graphic strokes. This body of artwork is calm yet energetic, meditative, contemplative, hopeful, and centered, reinterpreting the central-circular mandala theme in fresh ways.
The art beckons others into a peaceful joy, reflective thoughtfulness, hopeful anticipation. Its minimalism is symbolic of the state where everything else has been stripped away and only the essentials remain, expressed through graphic brush-work and bold gestures.
The continuation of the series blossoms with new life and vitality. It communicates this through energetic blues, yellows, and metallic colors, though playful mark-making and patterns.
