The Vortex Series -

The Vortex series is a meeting of opposing energies; a swirling confrontation where polar opposites meet. They wrestle, waiting for the balance to tip, as when a world balances on its axis and slowly tips to the other side. With the mindset of a realist, I envision a world filled with energies. Whether these energies be Intellectual, emotional or physical, there is that tipping point where both repulsive challenge and attractive synergy simultaneously occur. My exploration is both physical and contemplative. The encaustic and oilpaint, reflect my keen interest an authenticity-of-materials; the heating/cooling nature of wax-working embodies this fluid sense of co-existence between the light of powerful, balanced energy and the vast darkness of the void.
