Universal space

Circles, Geometry, and Universal space Universal Space 60é48 oil

This large surreal painting

has many different shapes

and details with a colour

scheme to suggest what it

may be like in the depths

of outer space.

Humanity

This painting is a study of

the human male form with

added line work and shape

to suggest the complexity

of life and what is unknown

about the Universe.

2014 60é48 oil

Three models posed for this picture

for six hours each over three weeks

and each model was painted a different

colour background to suggest there

relationship. Later, over many years

surreal line work and shapes were added

around the models to suggest the

miracle and mystery of life.

After watching a challenge on ink master where everyone

had to draw praying hands I decided to paint that motif after

seeing a lighter with praying hands on it. This was meant to

symbolize global warming and a prayer for a clean environment.

The clock is ticking on the hand because of climate change like

the road melting upwards into the sky as a bird rides a bicycle

until there is a split in dimensions. The time of pyramids in the

jungle and unspoiled earth paradise are disturbed when a portal

opens to reveal a magical pristine city. Tragically, this was completed

before Trayvon Martin was slain for defending himself as Trayvon

had gotten a praying hands Tattoo. R.I.P. Trayvon Martin

The security guard who killed him violated direct orders not to

pursue the child into his home which runs contrary to tea kwon do,

the self defence martial art, where you have to listen to your master

or you will be punished which is contrary to his self defence claim

because he did not listen and did not run away to his car and

instead stalked a battle with an unarmed child and killed him

because he was to weak to fight hand to hand and feeble

minded to see the consequences of his actions of some sort

of premeditation of violence.

Dawn in the age of Aquarius

The curtains to the stage opens to

reveal a magical reality where a giant

Koi Fish, symbol of good luck and long

life and triumph over adversity swims over

an aqueduct which is attached to an interior picture

frame. In the foreground a lotus flower blossoms in a

harsh desert climate close to a cactus at the foot of a

pyramid on a bright day with some clouds. In the picture

frame there is a dark moonlight sky over a valley whose

water begins to flow though the aqueduct sending the whole

picture into movement and scale distortion.
