Remembering Colour: The Living Moments Series

As we stumble into the darkening of the year I thought I'd share some of my latest paintings.  A good way to remember that even as we cycle into short days and long nights of winter, colour does still exist and will come again.

I hope you enjoy these.

The Living Moments Series reflect single moments of conscious relation with the natural world.  Each piece expresses the unexpected instant when human consciousness connects with the textures and colours of the living earth.  Layers of colour and texture reflect upon the multitude of living systems composing an ecosystem and contextualizing each moment of connection between human consciousness and the natural world.  The sense of depth created on the canvas suggests a sense of emotion and perhaps even consciousness responding to the viewer from within these living systems.  The balance of depth and simplicity within each composition ultimately invites the viewer to lean into that moment, resting on the unseen complexity of the living earth if only for the space of a single breathe.
