30x40 Acrylic on canvas 2014
About transforming those areas of your life where you realize you are not operating at your best. It's about growth and acknowledging where you have to go and how.
I was trying out a new style when I completed the first layer of this painting. It was bold and colorful and I wanted it to look at though you were viewing colorful and fun organisms under a microscope. There were little buzzing shapes all over the canvas and I felt it needed something more. My first pass for the final layer was with my new tool, a cement trowel, and it was exciting. I created this painting in front of a group of friends who were a mix of doctors and artists, who's discussion was about how their fields intersected.
I painted as they talked and bits of the evening were caught on film. A friend who was there that night has sworn that someday she will own this piece, no matter who she has to buy it from. So rest assured, you'll own a fan favorite.
This piece was also favored by the program direction of the Arts History Program at Villanova University when he visited my exhibit. His compliment included comparing my work to Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. A comparison I will always be grateful for.
May "Get Healthy" bless your home as its blessed my studio.
