Simple is difficult. To begin to approach simple you need to ask âWhat is not needed here?â. The answers are not easy. They involve sacrifice, loss, and change. Additionally, simplification is an ongoing process where we are required to move forward as well as change, again and again, keeping only what is deemed necessary at each new perspective along the journey.
My art uses this process to create imagery that embraces the viewer in a balanced and peaceful environment. Similar to a body of water or a field of grass, my art combines repetition and movement to hold the viewer as their thinking subsides and their feelings come forth. This context creates a comfort and trust, an opening that allows for the increased recognition of the simple beauty in everything around us.
What is my goal? To make the world a better place. How? I leave that up to each individual viewer to decide, for their path is different than mine. My only intention is to provide the environment where the familiarity and connection to the beauty of simplicity can be more easily seen, and therefore more clearly followed.
