Simply put, my art and indeed all of my creations are to provoke; to fill the viewers’ hearts and minds with wonder, and make their eyes dance. It is to splash forms and colors before those who gaze upon my art, and give them a manifestation of immense marvel. It’s all about the Awe! That is its purpose. If you look at my art, and the first thought that comes into you mind is, ‘Awesome!’, then I have succeeded.
The awe experience takes one away from one’s self for a little time, and elevates the spirit to new heights. The more we are awed, the higher our spirits soar. So, part of what my art seeks to achieve is to provoke a little of that soaring, in the process striving to enliven and up-lift the spiritual evolution of my viewers.
Beyond the Awe, A Philosophy
Beyond the awe, there is a philosophy behind my art, and perhaps a little bit of that scientific experimenter spirit. In my abstract art especially there is a philosophy of embracing emergence. The very processes that are used to create these postmodern contemporary digital fractal abstracts, with that Zen like quality, accommodate the science of emergent systems. Sometimes unexpected patterns emerge. The unplanned has as much a part, as that which was planned, and the result is a kind of aesthetic Rorschach test. It’s not about what I make in the art, it’s what the viewer sees in it, and that becomes as personal and individualized as possible. My titles for these abstracts reflect perhaps a little of that Rorschach test of myself, for it is only after the creation that I sit back look at it, and ask myself what do I see in it? Generally the title follows as the answer to that question. It is probably best that my art is first viewed, before reading the title. Decide what you see first, before allowing yourself to be influenced by the title I’ve given it.
