Throughout the month of May, the North Metro Arts Alliance is hosting its 2018 Colorado Visions art exhibit at City Hall in Westminster, Colorado.  Please join me on Thursday, May 10, for the reception, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.  Shapes Across 2 will be on display during May.  The City Hall is located at 4800 W. 92nd Avenue in Westminster. You may also visit the show on Mondays through Thursdays during business hours. 


An artistic impression inspired by images from the Hubble space telescope and the artist Wassily Kandinsky’s challenge to other artists --- “dematerialize the picture plane, urging the artist to transform it into a sensation of indefinable space, so that the spectator might experience the extension of … the dimension of time.”  Another way of saying that is “to create the illusion of cosmic infinity on the flat plane of the canvas.”  (Quotes are from p. 214 Spiritual in Art, which is taken from Point, Line and Plane.)   While I don’t think I’ve “dematerialized the picture plane” (which I interpret to mean to moving toward greater abstraction so that no identifiable objects are seen), I do see this painting as a possible first in a series, perhaps becoming more abstract and dematerialized.

                                                             SACRED GEOMETRY

Sacred geometries are the basic underpinnings of nature and the universe.  Specifically, sacred geometry can be found in patterns everywhere on earth and in the solar system and beyond.  These repetitions of shapes occur on earth in its oceans, in landscapes, in the sky and the clouds.  In the larger cosmos, patterns are found throughout the length of the universe or perhaps even into multiverses.  Sacred geometry comprises the most basic structures in the cosmos.  Perhaps considered sacred because they consist of particles represented everywhere in the universe, down to the molecular level.  As a result, these geometries have enormous reach.  Do they hold everything together?  Do they work in unity with every thing to create the cosmos?  Do they describe the fabric of the universe?

As a fan of Neil de Grasse Tyson, I loved when he described how the planet Neptune was discovered based purely on using the laws of physics.   I am awed and inspired by the multitude of visual geometries transmitted by the Hubble Space Telescope and other large scale visual scans.  Their complexity and enormity are truly jaw dropping.


​My cosmos paintings are merely meant to represent an artist's inspiration.

About My Paintings

I am currently working in both oil and acrylic paints, and sometimes I incorporate paper or other materials (noted by "mixed media") for greater texture.  Each piece is sealed with several coats of varnish for long-lasting quality and UV protection.  Most works on paper are framed and ready to hang, and all paintings on canvas are ready to hang.  Sizes shown are height by width.
