“Absolute: Frequency” (detail)

My latest painting, Absolute: Frequency combines layer upon layer of opposing forces into one conversation. It depicts the oscillations in our lives: fortunate blessings and frustrating blights, life and death, ups ands downs, and seasonal changes. I’m exploring the relationships between how we feel change measured from the position of maximum equilibrium. Each element of this work slides between an amplitude of opposites.

This is a special piece that is packed full of meaning and opportunity. Next year, it will find its way to another country as part of an international exhibition! Read on below for a visual breakdown, process video, image gallery, and what travel adventures are in store.

“Absolute: Balance”, Oil on reclaimed burled maple. 12 1/2” x 12 1/2”. 10.21.18.A dead root winds its way up from the bottom of a burled background. The edges of the painting boil and fade from a dark green to bare wood. Near the bottom-center is a small fluffy cloud that appears to be suspended by two red threads. One thread intertwines with the root, wrapping around it so that it is taught on one side and slack on the other. Absolute: Balance finds itself somewhere between fantasy and reality.
