"The most powerful statement we can make is " I AM " - with these words we visualize and create our reality."
THE NONDUALITY SERIES:
JUNGLE OF LOVE
GO WITH THE FLOW
The NonDuality Series: They are what they are. The names which came to mind when reflecting upon these paintings conjured a sense of exposing some contradictory nature inherent in life. My gut response to name the first one, "Jungle of Love" was perplexing- the feeling I get from the piece is definitely tribal, of love gone wild- but the composition and geometric details of the piece cognitively suggest an external cityscape- or perhaps each form contains a thought acting as building blocks of an internal emotional landscape.
The second piece in the series has one word in it, "Swim"- yet the feeling of the piece caused me to name it "Go With the Flow".
The third painting has a symbolic bird in it, echoing sentiments of Flying Free in the painting "Live Your Dream". The bird in "Freedom Flight", however, is contained by two circlespheres and a trianglesphere. Perhaps these are the thoughts that create our boundaries, and make us believe we cannot fly. T
he beautiful thing about art highlighted here is the ability for an image to delve into multiple dimensions of reality. Ultimately, what is true for you is what the artwork becomes. What is true for me is the connections and clear nonduality of life. I am free, and I am flying even when I do not feel it. Whether I swim with the current or against it, I am part of the Flow. Each thought I have is full of Love, reflected sometimes as triangles, circles, or rectangles- whether positive or negative each thought is part of a greater flow of Energy and Love. The emotion imbued in my geometric forms is reflected in each "imperfection" from their precise states. In each painting's natural breaks from symmetry and precison are revealed expressions of Love coming to know itself.
