Red
is the color of passionate love,
seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure.
Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood
– energy and primal life forces –
and most of red’s symbolism today arises
from its powerful associations in the past.

X

Red is also a magical and religious color.
It symbolized super-human heroism to the Greeks
and
is the color of the Christian crucifixion.

X

Red was almost as rare and as expensive as purple in ancient days
– a fact that may explain its magic and power.

Pink
represents compassion, nurturing and love.
It relates to unconditional love and understanding,
and the giving and receiving of nurturing.

X

A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red,
helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white.
It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity,
openness and completeness of white.
The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.

X

Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate
and intimate, thoughtful and caring.
It tones down the physical passion of red
replacing it with a gentle loving energy.

X

Pink is intuitive and insightful,
showing tenderness and kindness
with its empathy and sensitivity.

Black is associated with power; 
elegance; formality and mystery.

X

Black denotes strength and authority;
it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color.

X

In heraldry, black is the symbol of grief.

X

Black was one of the first colors used by artists
in neolithic cave paintings.

Yellow is a symbolic color that brings joy and delight. 
The third chakra, located at the solar plexis,
is said to be yellow.

X

The
“solar plexis”
is associated with the power of the sun (solar-sun).
Yellow, then, is associated with positive thinking.

X

The solar plexis is where we/I gather
y/our/ my courage
and
y/our/ my will power.

The yellow color I selected for

BLACKMOVESYELLOW

series shifts suddenly, and slowly,
the color vacillates from gold to citron
depending on the  source/ intensity of the ambient light
and the position of the viewer to the work.
My art needs an actual encounter.
It IS a performance that needs to be witnessed/ experienced.

 

I mixed several variations of yellow like a sound engineer working with a sonic.
Refining.
Refining.
Discerning.
Refining.
Discerning.
Touchstone.

X

My art is silent sonics.
You listen to it with attentive, receptive open palms.
The space is the silence between the notes.

X

Each painting is a composition of disparate parts:
 filmic + sonic + poetic.

X

The line quality resonates with Mstislav Rostropovich’s
cello’s flowing/ deepening  sonic grace of his Bach Cello Suites.

x

 

X

 

 

Then there is Charles Lloyd’s sonics:
a testament of the presence of the sacred.

X

I listened to Charles’

WILD MAN DANCE

as I worked in the studio over and over and over and over and over and over and 
over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over…

X

Charles’ art is always a revelation,
a harkening of ALL that is only visible
to the heart, by/ for the beloved
and calls out what is luminous in y/our my soul.

X

His sonics are one continuous river of reverence.
Blessing the wild.
Blessings of the serene.
Blessed are the explorers who listen to the Oracle of Delphi and hold a divining rod.
