These paintings explore the ways subtle, ephemeral vibration can be made visible, using energetically-charged paint to create fields of color, light and texture.
I use sound vibration to imprint a specific quality in the work, by directing audio inside the water I paint with. Some works are submerged in sound-charged pools of pigment over extended periods of time as the audio plays on a continuous loop.
Examples of audio include mantras or music composed from ancient texts such as the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, or audio from natural settings with little exposure to human-created sound.
Welcoming these sacred texts into the work has connected me more deeply to their wisdom, while honoring them as portals to a universal, aspiring consciousness across centuries and the earth.
