"Our chimera's are most like us" part 7   oil on board  36" x 36"  2013     "Our chimeras are most like us. Each of us dreams the unknown and the impossible according to his own nature." -Victor Hugo  This body of work, titled  And now I am slowly reading , is concerned with the post-limen.  Painted abstractions of the sky function as invitations to find moments of stillness in fields of subtle movement.   “…and in the end he had come to look at hardly anything but the sky, the only thing that truth can see from the bottom of her well,” Victor Hugo explains of Marius in  Les Miserables . In staring at the sky each day, Marius had come to a state of stillness, which opened him up not only to beauty, but to his own dreaming. As I gaze into the heavens daily, I find myself both simultaneously more aware of the beauty around me, but also purely engaged with the experience of my own dreaming. These paintings are as much about connecting with the outside world as connecting with my interior. So while being evidence of the eternal, the work is also evidence of my own constant searching and constant dreaming.
