Breathing Stillness is a minimal work that elicits a sense of peacefulness, simplicity and mystery. The composition glows from its center and gently radiates out to the dark, blue-black edges. Thousands of delicate lines, flecks and dots are layered over one another creating a tapestry of vibrating energy. The painting is inspired by the meditative experience of feeling the reality within my body - the sensations that are constantly manifesting, changing. fading. This reality is not visible, but I try to express it by creating an energy field of color, marks in movement. The surface of the canvas is textured with silica sand and gesso which adds a sensual tactility to the ethereal image. The work comes alive in subdued lighting and offers the busy, stressed mind a place of refuge. The work is signed on the back and is ready to hang.
