My paintings I
find belong to the genre of visionary art, taking influence from Blake,
Escher, Tobey. They are mystical and spiritual in content, while employing
a kind of articulation or binding of space in their construction of form.
Such binding of space may be achieved through the tessellation or
aggregation of specific shapes or strokes, as pixels or quanta, or
interstitial tracings. In this respect many partake of styles reminiscent
of Van Gogh, Mark Tobey, Richard Pousette-Dart. Others express vision
through mathematical metaphor and bind space with mathematical principle,
as the works of M. C. Escher, George Tooker. Thus they encourage an
interaction between painter/viewer and the painting in the apprehension of
their imagery, just as they exhibit a play between figure and ground, or
mathematical relativity, in their design. The paintings are often inspired
by, or meditate or reflect upon, Bahá’í
Scriptural verse or other scriptural text.
