Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Blue Sanctity elicits feelings of peacefulness and infinite space. There is a subtle central light that radiates toward the dark blue-black vignette giving the viewer a sense of nature. The painting comprises thousands of delciate lines, flecks and dots which weave together a tapestry of vibrating energy. It has been shown in Vernon Public Art Gallery and Peachland Art Gallery in the exhibition, "The Light Within You." One viewer who saw the piece commented, "These paintings are amazing. I was enthralled. I just sat there - nobody but my husband and I were there at the time - it was so quiet, they drew me in and I got lost. So beautiful.”

To create my "monochromes" I use a technique similar to mandala sand painting. I dip a small fan brush into paint and tap it against a stick to create delicate dots and splatters. For hours, I tap until the canvas is covered with layers of lines and flecks. The resulting image is a homogonous field – an energized labyrinth of patterns, lines, and vibrations. I may paint a dark border around this field to contain its movement. From a distance the monochromes appear orderly and unified. Yet up close, they reveal chaotic patterns and particles moving in all directions like matter spinning in space. The monochromes express my molecular reality – the reality manifesting as bodily sensations pulsating, throbbing, prickling, tingling, and manifesting inside me. My hope is that while the viewer gazes at the field of vibrating color, he or she will become aware sensations and their own reality.
