Art's ability to encompass the fields of psychology, physical science, religion and philosophy enables it to weave meaningful images out of the individual strands of knowledge from other, more restrictively focused disciplines. Future works will continue this wide-ranging exploration of how meaning emerges in abstract art and in art's potential for providing insight into the nature of life. Don't forget to bring nachos.
The Easter Cycle, a suite of ten paintings from 1985, considers the connections between art's spiritual roots and those of religion and psychology.
Through the use of basic geometric elements rendered in expressive, painterly gestures the suite compares the awakening and flowering of nature during the onset of springtime with the psychological processes of individuation and spiritual sublimation.
Evoking the themes of growth, resurrection and transcendence through the use of the rectangular mandala form as the combined symbol of nature and the human psyche, these paintings are meditations on the duality of human life, as they affirm the indissoluble bond between spirit and matter.
