Acrylic on canvas
50 x 38 inchesAbout the piece
"Stellar" is a new series of paintings. The idea came from an article I read about "a possible non-physical realm of existence to which various phenomena, (psychic and other) are ascribed." I create a fluid-looking quality to invoke a feeling that you're "catching a glimpse" of phenomena (spiritual, deep space, water, weather patterns).The horizontal panels function as "scenes", yet each painting viewed as a whole, has unity, color, depth and the sense of an inner light source. My ultimate intention is to "draw the viewer in", to experience a moment of quiet reflection in the midst of our fast-paced world.About the artist
