BRIAH Danse

Collaborating with choreographer Jayne Persch to combine a projection of my work on the stage with several dance performances, is an exercise in trust. She chose the final works to use and she will be the one who works out the lighting. I am letting it evolve and have little idea of the final outcome.

Using my painted images for an unintended purpose sure gets me out of my box for creative neurons stimulation. Looking forward to the Boulder trip and seeing it all unfold.

Debut in Colorado — February 7th & 8th

Artist Council Inaugural Exhibition

Two of my “Earth Tree” series paintings have been accepted to the Artist Council Inaugural Exhibition of the Huntington Beach Art Center.  My latest one in the series is shown above, which has a more expressionist development and vibrant palette.  The warm tones dominate over the cool blue-green base, with a strong broadside of light and heat from the left.  I would be pleased to see you at the opening or at the artists’ talk evening.  Below are the details of show and my art statement for the Earth Tree series.

I also add a note of good news about my other current show at the Irvine Fine Arts Center.  At the Sept. 20 opening, I received a first place award in painting (third overall) for the three Earth Tree paintings in that show.

ART STATEMENT – EARTH TREE SERIES

Big trees have long inspired humans beyond the utilitarian resources they provide.  Their spirit is uplifting; they grow in annual cycles, becoming massive, towering and long lived wonders. There is extraordinary strength in their limbs and branches, and yet they rhythmically move with the wind.  Each is unique, yet is constantly changing with time and season.  They thrive with earth, water and sun to benefit man and the environment, and symbolically they join the earth with the sky.  In my Cubist and expressionistic painting style, I paint abstractions of these qualities of trees.
