About This Event

My inspiration for the new paintings of the Unwinding Series is to serve as a positive catalyst by bringing light and playfulness to the viewer. I consider the creation of art a sacred ritual. Before I pick up the paintbrush there is a long preparation involving meditation, sketching, journaling and reflection.  These bold and colorful oil paintings emerged over the course of eight to twelve months, allowing two to three weeks for the oil paint to dry after each new layer, while working on multiple canvases simultaneously.  The viewer is invited to trace the unwinding patterns as they create a flow that extends far beyond the canvas. The eyes, fingertips and, soon, the whole body may move with an inner rhythm that has been awakened. At this point one might feel the urge to move lightly or even dance! These paintings are an invitation to be in the moment, listen within and follow the next impulse, leading to a natural unwinding of the body and spirit. Everything in the universe vibrates; it unwinds, flows, and spins.  This constant movement of creation is present in our physical bodies, it’s flow and change is essential. The Unwinding on the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual level is needed to maintain health and balance.  Enjoy.
