“Undercurrent” is about our Water.

A precious necessity in all our lives is now and has been effected by our climate change.

Mother Earth is trying to heal herself. Just as our body sends healing to injuries so is our planet. The floods, hurricanes, droughts and fires all are ways she is trying to heal the impact of our actions.

As I work with images of water, air and earth I hold these as precious gifts to us.

Harmony, Purity and Respect will attain Tranquility as stated in the principals of “Chado” the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

If the human race could practice these principals in our daily lives we could attain true Peace.

Deepening Journey  3'x9' Sold

Deepening Journey 3'x9' Sold

Made in three panels this piece flows with continuous movement. 

Made with up-cycled watercolor paper fibers (cotton) that I re-form into sheets in an unconventional method.  This technique creates bubbles, flaws and the beautiful deckle edges. I fuse the sheets with wax, resin and a soft iridescent oil paint that creates a subtle glow highlighting the paper. I fuse the paper to the panel so it floats above the next creating light and shadow on the next sheet.  As you walk around the piece the light catches it and is constantly changing with the natural light and any spot light you shine on it.

Take Refuge 24x72 Not Available

Take Refuge 24x72 Not Available

"Take Refuge" was inspired by the documentary film “Human Flow” by Ai Weiwei, Chinese artist now in exile for his political and human rights activism. The film tells stories of the 68,000,000 humans that are homeless in 23 countries around the world, with beauty, stark truth and compassion.

Seeing acres of tents sprawled in the desert of Turkey captured my heart.

Taking Refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha is a Buddhist Vow -- to serve something greater than our individual lives through prayer, compassion and loving kindness for All Human Beings. These are principles I strive for in my own practice and "Take Refuge" comes from this intention and the desire to bring attention to this crisis. We must learn to coexist and respect each other as human beings with all our differences or perish. This Human Crisis exposes our urgent need to connect with the basic altruistic value of humanity. "Take Refuge" is my prayer.

What does refuge mean to you?

Where do you find it?

Undercurrent

Looking deeply to find center

Repeating over and over again

Memories of a mantra

Nature’s elements form shapes

Similar but unique

Light and shadow

Bend and turn to see the other side

A resting place

Comfort

Peace
