Rainbow Study 2016-2017
These paintings are heavy with symbolism taken from neopagan spirituality, Greek mythology, geometry, alchemy, astronomy and astrology, and other world cultures. I am also studying spectrums, reflections, and rainbows, which has a strong presence in my life.
I am interested in exploring the similarities in symbolism across cultures and generations while using my technique to create a cohesive style.
The sphere has been a prominent and repetitive shape in my work, usually symbolizing objects in space, such as the moon, sun, and planets. I continue to use the sphere as a focal point in my new pieces as a way to ground and unify the paintings.
