Waves of Browns flow upwards within a green and blue background. This abstract gives the feeling of flight and expressive emotion .

Curator’s Comment:


I most respond to Flight of the Humblebee in this series of organic abstractions, because the density of shape and line is most unanticipated and varied.  Full non-objectivity of the image also allows for purely formal and unified visual responses, unencumbered by the contrastingly representational portraits.  The ‘bee’ in this piece isn’t instantly distinguished and recognized, but is viscerally experienced through the movement of the spiny protrusions and small beaded droplets.  The overarching structure to the composition offers a heightened crescendo, as in the rhythmic upward movements of a swarm or single bee.  The cool transitions from green to blue in the background soothe this perceived erratic but elegant movement, and connect the subject to a natural environment.  I also very much like the piece entitled Under Currents.  The horizontal strata of the constructed shapes implies an aquatic landscape, but the painting also sways with the diagonal slant of the forms at the bottom of the picture plane, and then brings the viewer up through the ‘sky’ to meet the rising swirls of pale yellow ochre and green.  The shore could alternately read as a convoluted body as you suggest in your statement; an alien entity.
