A new body of work emerges using my favorite media: Cast resin, opalescent earth powders, steel, and self illumination. Illumination is a key element of the work and each work piece takes on a different atmosphere when viewed in a darkened setting. The elemental themes of Earth, Water, Air and Fire are present… but there is an emphasis on the “fifth” element; the element which describes matter beyond the material world. An invisible realm in existence before existence began, present at the beginning. The ” On Earth as it is In Heaven” series, is an artistic depiction of a “realm” of time, space and the omnipresence relationship of the Creator. I visualize ancient seas and reefs, rugged mountain ranges, and translucent skies with imaginary dry clouds.These are recurring themes in this new body of work. My color palette is derived from the desert southwest where it meets the ocean, places well known to me. My color palette consists of rust, ochres, turquoise, blues, greens, deep russet red, pearl white and shades of violet.
