Silent Search, No. 7
I convey nature’s silence and peace with my paintings. Their quiet form and color speaks to natural, fulfilling calmness. Like rivers, lakes, seas, or canyons, these places are neither blank nor empty. Rather, the art pieces’ intricacies and subtleties come alive with quiet contemplation.
At first glance, a place might look simple or flat, but when time is taken to sit, reflect, and experience what is going on beneath the surface, new ecosystems, patterns, and sounds can be perceived. We need to pay attention to these subtleties. We are a part of the same system. The content of these pieces reflects the silence in absence of human noise – not blank, but rich in depth.
Over many months I build up color and surface texture on the canvas using small amounts of acrylic paint with thinning agents, retarder, gloss, matte, and other acrylic media. Generally, the under-painting is complimentary to the finished surface color. This technique builds up to create an incredibly rich finished surface that makes the paintings look like they glow.
