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.

X
X
X
X
X

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.

X

We all know the betrayal,

the heartbreak, the deceit of

unauthentic joy.

Contrived.
Affected.
Feigned.
It is a dead sound.
A fake smile that thrashes your soul.
A foul smell.
A numb touch.
Your body and soul shrinks, vanishes away, unseen.

“I didn’t expect

to recover

from my

second operation

but since I did,

I consider that I’m living

on borrowed time.

Every day that dawns

is a gift to me

and

I take it in that way.

I accept it gratefully

without

looking beyond it.

I completely forget

my physical suffering

and

all the unpleasantness

of my present condition

and

I think only of the JOY

of seeing the sun

RISE

once more

and

of being able to work a little bit,

even under

difficult conditions.”

Henri Matisse

JOY!

“One of the tasks of true friendship is to listen
compassionately
and
creatively
to the
hidden silences.
Often secrets are not revealed in words,
they lie concealed in the silence
between the words
or in the depth of what is unsayable
between two people.”

X

X

X

“Once the soul awakens, the search begins
and you can never go back.
From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing
that will never again let you linger in the lowlands
of complacency and partial fulfillment. 
The eternal makes you urgent.
You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back
from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.”

X

X

X

“Love allows understanding to dawn, and understanding is precious.
Where you are understood, you are at home.
Understanding nourishes belonging.
When you really feel understood,
you feel free to release yourself into the trust
and
shelter of the other person’s soul.”

X

X

X

“When love awakens in your life, in the night of your heart,
it is like the dawn breaking within you.
Where before there was anonymity, now there is intimacy;
where before there was fear, now there is courage;
where before in your life there was awkwardness,
now there is a rhythm of grace and gracefulness;
where before you used to be jagged,
now you are elegant and in rhythm with your self.
When love awakens in your life,
it is like a rebirth,
a new beginning.”

I am NOT going to stand up to show pride in a flag

for a country that oppresses black people

and people of color,”

Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game.

“To me,

this is bigger than football

and it would be selfish on my part

to look the other way.

There are bodies in the street

and people getting paid leave

and getting away with murder.”

Colin Kaepernick

X

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick
has willingly immersed himself into controversy
by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem
in protest of what are wrongdoings
against African Americans and minorities in the United States.

The infamous legend of alchemists turning common metals into gold
is actually a parable for the human quest to change base vulgarities
like greed, hate and selfishness
into qualities like love, virtue and compassion
through the process of self-purification

X

Ergo, gold is symbolic of this transition of the soul.

“BEAUTY IS NOT CAUSED. IT IS.”  

Emily Dickinson

X

 The experience/witnessing of my art is likened to viewing a photograph of a lover in contrast to reveling in the actual presence of the beloved

-a real commUnIcation.

X

So it is with ALL my work: listen to the cadence, the shape, the pause, the movement, and the silence…

My art pursues the beauty of realization rather than perfect beauty.

 X

All of my life I have known an inviolable place of inner freedom containing:

X

Earth; pieces of washed clear blue skies; brilliant unfolding blooms; wings of flight; the color and arcs of rainbows; the hallelujah chorus of wind, rain and rivers; and the white glistened silence of ice.

X

This was my chrysalis:

X

My life was baptized in hospitals, a place where time and space was defined as waiting, compassion and hope. No flag of creed, race, religion, gender, or social rank was raised. 

X

We were all horizontal breathing beds. I lived in a body cast with a shaven head. Visitors were allowed once a week for two hours and touching was forbidden- like an art museum with limited hours. 

X

I was a broken Ming vase re-created with expert hands and I was set on fire with love.

 X

My art offers the viewer the transcendent moment of an epiphany. The moment when one’s heart is suddenly set open and rapt and when all the senses are heralded and keen.

X

My art is I/ ThoU – the sacred, sensuous dialogue of call + response, an intimate dance unfolds and the gospel song is “I see you- you, an unrepeatable field of gold”.  

X

My art is improvisational-attending to both the sound of the silver horn within the wilderness of my soul- and in response/dialogue with the external world.
