Each painting on the continuum has a unique history, but the overall process by which they develop is similar. Each image progresses over a period of time: starting out as abstractions and textures, evolving into motifs and themes, then moving through a period of associative or emerging symbols, and finally incorporating embedded images…found-objects of the psyche, washed up on the shores of the consciousness.
Where does the realm of consciousness lie?
Where is the blue of the morning sky?
"The scientific process has revealed to us that the fundamental structures of the material world are indeterminate at the quantum level. Their statistically random dance emerges from the chaos of the quantum-field, giving rise to a world of order… governed by physical laws of conservation and gravity, measurable via our senses, and expressed through mathematics, music, color and light. Human instincts--desire and fear, the will to power, to explore, to visualize and understand--lie at the heart of culture: art, science, philosophy… civilization. These paintings explore the foundations of consciousness through symbols, metaphor, mythological and poetic images... impressions of our experienced realities." -RQ
