Miniature Acrylic on Masonite, 3.5" x 5," from 2015. Conceived as an infinite horizontal. 3 multiplications required for the full image, 4 multiplications for symmetry, as presented here.

In 2015, I wrote this about the piece, "The heart of being dwells far beyond our dribbling, scribbling, trail of words. It beats and circulates in a great ocean of unconscious activity. Art provides a vehicle that can dive into these mysterious waters. We begin with a single act, a brush stroke of creative intuition. This is followed by another and then another. Each one inspires or provokes the next, drawing us deep beneath the surface- into the realms of archetype and mythic imagination. Here, the rules dissolve. Lines become gradients. Thought, flesh. Light has weight. Emotion is color. The boxes are upturned and categories are rewired. Symbols rub up against symbols and the inhabitants speak nothing but the language of dreams. Down here, beyond convention, there are new lessons to be learned, echoes of self and society, of ancient tales, and yet untold stories. All these strange reflections are freed from the bedrock of the world as we know it, and on the tip of a tiny brush, rise to the surface like mysterious bits of gold panned from a river.

We may, on occasion, look upon them with recognition. We may glimpse some passing shadow of a past or future self, a cloud of desire, a tree of anxiety, a brand new pair of eyes. But these nuggets from beneath the sea may never be named at all, remaining mysterious unresolved treasures from a deeper vein of ore.

Not always, but sometimes.... regularly, I think.... it is good to go for a swim and see what comes up."
