Human consciousness, how we know who we are, how we remember our history, how we pass on our awareness to the future, and how we experience the environment, informs the content of my work. I invite the viewer to consider the unseen biological processes which are the basis of our being, and to artistically explore with me the neuron as the basic organ of human experience.
In this series Action/Reaction my focus is on neural structures and pathways as energy. This electro chemical energy that is unseen by the naked eye is stunning, mysterious and difficult to imagine in scale and power. I respond intellectually and emotionally to the mysterious grandeur of this phenomenon and express my reactions in dark, transparent paintings with textured surfaces.
