Thanks so much, Stacey Skwiot!!
Thank you, dear John K Crum!! xox
(This painting was named The Dance too!) Maybe it should go nameless, ha!
Thanks for your time here, resident curator! I am working on a whole series called Eden now, about God and Eros. Apples as our heart and the serpent as wisdom bearer. I will post them. I really appreciate your comments. This painting can also be called Communion in that vein.
The Kiss is one of many enchanted but spiraling landscapes driven by romantic entanglements. (or mythical, primordial god- or ballet? I interpret your identification of the dance of Eros broadly ) Either way, I enjoy the way this piece literally connects the arching vines and trees in a loop so that illusion of an opening portal is visually slowed to one chosen moment and place. The web of colorfully connective lines forms a soft umbrella, while the lighter ground floats up through the space. The ultimate result is of a shallowly framed environment. I don’t feel particularly grounded in this piece, as the pale green center floats slightly above the implied horizon. Perhaps this is the dreamy sensation of a kiss. I enjoy the harmonious connectivity of the land and small structures in most of your other paintings, implying we are not separate from the land. But perhaps the painting entitled Edisto as Eden Isle is still the most successful piece in terms of relaying the disbelief or discord of a lost Paradise. Most literally constructed as an Eden with requisite snake and apple, the iconography is wonderfully embedded into the writhing movement of the low hanging trees. The ochre, green and violet color palette are evocative of Gauguin in Tahiti; the epitome of displaced spiritual passion.
