This interactive sculpture is a visual representation of the necessity of balance throughout life. Similar to life, our course changes as represented by each pivoting section forming a new path and design.
“Rhythms reveal a path thru life.”
I create rhythmic paintings connecting art, music, and life. Life is a series of rhythms, sometimes harmonious, sometimes discordant, as it is with life. For nearly 3 decades I have been inspired by and exploring music. Initially I focused on instruments, then moved to sound, and more recently the rhythms of life.
As an expressionist in art and life, my paintings are what I hear, what I feel and what I experience; they are abstract artworks and appear lyrically composed with a gently play between lines, negative space, and swirling movements of color and form. My bold and dynamic works focus on mark making and rhythmic shapes and lines.
