acrylic paint and prismacolor on gessoed paper

21" x 24"

This work of art is part of a large body of work (my "Portal Series") that was generated during the latter part of the 1980's. This is an image of a house with the door (portal) centered on the picture plane, and a window above it. There is a suggestion of a stream of smoke (from a fireplace. or stove) emanating from the door of the house. The three orbs/spheres followed by arching white lines are suggestive of three souls traveling into, and during DreamTime.

Artist’s Statement

My aim is to not aim and yet to hit the mark. This is how it is in my working with the materials of making. Something happens. It looks and feels right, and in the end what has BECOME has a voice and a life of its own. It is as if a space had been reserved for a particular expression and at the right moment in time it becomes manifest. Life has summoned into being that which was needed in the moment to fill a present need.

Being a part of this process of bringing an expression into being is very much like re-membering what is essential. Here, there is a gathering together by way of insight, reflection, and intuition – those elements which are part of a greater whole, which when orchestrated and arranged in particular ways have the potential to speak to the core of our identity. A kind of receptiveness and alertness is required to know where to move one’s hands or what colors, shapes or forms to choose.

These images are records of my responses to a myriad of stimuli. These expressions are ways in which I share in the universal exploration of self in the context of world (family, society, et cetera). The long – held view that an abstraction is the creation of a form or image which does not occur naturally in this world can be expanded to include the idea that these forms and images represent that which we see in the realm of the imagination and what we sense with feeling. It is for this reason that I choose to think of these images and forms as representing landscapes of the inner eye.
