"Spirits Along #RT 66" Mixed Media 9" x 15" x 5' Steel, Wood, Resin and Light $900.00
I imagine an "unseen" world and work to replicate that vision in my work. "Spirits Along #RT 66" was inspired by deep and mysterious memories in remote desert settings of New Mexico, Arizona and Baja. Finite time is measured counting the rings in the wood, layers of time contribute to creation of this vision, where two worlds collide in the twilight hour and light is exchanged in a forbidden energy state. The greater light diminishes and the lesser light rules the darkness for a time. I imagine what I can't see in an unseen world.
Its a magical time... Goodbye sun...hello moon.

He who builds His layers in the sky, And has founded His strata in the earth; Who calls for the waters of the sea, And pours them out on the face of the earth— The Lord is His name. Amos 9:6
"The Remembering Place" 12" x 24"x 6" Mixed Media- Steel-Wood-Resin-Light $900 Two types of light pry open the darkness: a light created by photoluminescence shines in stark contrast to LED lights penetrating the layers of resin casts. Two lights playing different roles compete for our attention. Layers of color: sky blue-micropearl white and grean pearlescent pigments are cast with phosphorescent green and blue powders. The lights fight for an interchange of energy and dominance. Weathered wood contrasts with the liquid surface of the resin casts while a high gloss lacquer on a blue/black and rust patina steel, provides a surface that casts strong shadows.
The act of remembering evokes many emotions and I hope that my pieces can contribute to memories of peace, acceptance, healing and solace. There are past hurts that cannot be forgotten but can be healed. There are loving memories of early adventures and relationships. Memories are shaped in positive and negative ways, by our interpretations.
God is love and meditating on love is meditating on God.

Broken Bread-Poured Wine 12" x 24" x 6" Wood-Resin-Steel & Light Gifted to New City Church
A thick wooden shard, shaped as an oblique triangle and layered in resin is suspended against a dark primordial background. A haunting vision-is it an outstretched body hung on a rugged cross, this is first that comes to mind. Light permeates the translucent layers, illuminating a message to the viewer. To some, a river of life, promises of a future hope and light that illuminates a path of life.
And light exposes bowls on the table, containers encasing the symbols of the New Covenant; Broken Bread & Poured Wine and a command "Remember me...often".
The steel has a rich iron black finish with rusts, ochre and mineral green coloration. The steel is finished with 4 coats of lacquer and buffed to a smooth finish. The LED light is battery operated and attaches to a light hood also made of steel via 2 magnets mounted in the back of a 6 LED light bar.
