ABOUT: A circle is unity, completeness, wholeness. A circle represents the self. A circle is always in motions. Our experience of self never remains fixed; it keeps shifting moment yo moment, yet the feeling of being in oneself brings that feeling of being at ease. We are forever seeking this place.
ABOUT: I directed my model to make shapes with her body. As a professional ballet dancer, this was innate to her. This is what a dancer does. Her fluid, poetic form evoked a state of weightlessness. She was flying.
ABOUT: Especially with this painting, title is everything. Notice how your perception and understanding of the image if the title were Stepping Forward, or Blues, or A New Beginning, or The Future, or The Past. Each title dramatically changes our viewing. I’ve left this one untitled to allow the viewer supply his, her, or their meaning.
ABOUT: Sloth is one of the Seven Deadly Sins. It’s challenging to portray sloth as most slothful poses just look boring. I decided to present death as the ultimate state of not-doing. The ultimate non-action.
