OBJECTS in a DIMENSION
Saddle - Transition of Perception 2013

In this dimension experience, solid form is seen as energy, revealing the light and life that lies within and beyond it. It is then that we begin to approach true vision.
The PERCEPTION of FORM in a DIMENSION (cont.)

About the Paintings: How does one paint "forms in a dimension," where things stand out more clearly, are filled with more life, and at times do not even seem solid at all? In my attempts, I often start out with a black background implying the nothingness I earlier mentioned, or one could say, the changeless, the unified field or the Universal Mind. I then depict the life and energy of that field through lines, curly cues, splatters and washes of color. The next step is to begin painting the forms of this dimension, whether a still life, landscape, or a person, transparent first, building up into the seeming solidity of form here and there, duplicating as near as possible my experience of form as pure energy existing in this dimension.
Opening to these paintings might trigger for you the actual experience of this world being in a dimension, as well as act as a reminder as you move through your day.

When I am present and I am experiencing being in a dimension, my inner space becomes clearer as I look out on the world beyond. My sense of self grows more transparent. The borderline between my inner world and the external world starts to diminish, creating a unified flow of energy between the two.
A quote that will appear next to this painting in my traveling museum exhibit is from Werner Heisenberg, theoretical physicist awarded the Nobel Prize“ for the creation of quantum mechanics” in 1932:
“...separation of the observer from the phenomenon to be observed is no longer possible.”
