|Stunningly beautiful fractal abstraction.|
Safe placeSAFE PLACESafe place by emoCUPCAKESblueberry
jump over a bridge
jump over the moon
jump over this entire world full of hurt
and just go to that safe place that is in jumping distance
and place your heart there
then come back to this world of hurt
only because you know your heart is safe
away from the hurt
away from the pain
away from the two faced people
and away from the messed signals
so so very far away
safe and warm gentely
placed on a bed of feathers
in that safe place where
no one can hurt you
no one can find you
no on can make you cry
no one can stop you
where you can be you and no one is in control of your life
you control which way the wheel turns
you control which side of the fork in the road you will take
and you control where you want to go
and only you can hurt you there...
My work is a synthesis of the intricate, chaotic, and unpredictable. I work primarily in digital media, focusing on colorful abstracts, complex fractal manipulations, and digital photography, with brief incursions into traditional media such as acrylic on various supports. I work with shapes, colors and textures in an attempt to reach something greater than the sum of those parts.
Most of my work is non-objective pure abstract and I delve into the world of the expressionist, minimalist, and pure color field. Some of my work is meant to be playful, colorful, and childlike. I explore relationships between organic forms, crisp edges, and vivid colors.
I see the world as a struggle between the 'thinking' and 'feeling' parts of the mind, each becoming more or less dominant over time, and I endeavor to appeal to both in my work. I touch on themes such as the mystical, mundane, esoteric, vulgar, and philosophical.
I was born in Waterloo, Iowa and grew up in surrounding communities. I studied Art at the University of Northern Iowa, in Cedar Falls. Much of the past 45 years have been spent living and working in the upper Midwest of the United States including Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois where I currently reside in Springfield.
Available for commissions.
