About the new paintings:
This summer was one of my more productive periods marked by a return to earlier techniques, more lavish application of paints, and the discovery of a superior German oil paint. I have always liked the thicker oil paintings that are distinctively thicker and brighter than many of my paintings of the "River Mill" period. I also discoverd a new canvas that is an inch and a half thick and better constructed than some of the thinner cavases I have used. The real excitement came from finding a far superior oil made in Germany. The hues are noticeably more brilliant and complex in their colorations, and I suspect will have a more archival duration. The last three paintings I worked on are entitled: Colored Perspectives, The Time Circuit from the Future, and Schism of a Wormhole Embedded in the Multiverse. In the last painting named above, two different techniques were employed to suggest a ripple, a break in the exotic material that maintains the integrity of the wormhole. On another level this is a topological brainteaser, and yet on another level this is simply color embedded in form.
This past summer was one of rediscovery of technique - of playing with new ways to take an old approach to painting and re-creating a new feel, even a new cosmology (one of my favorite words: Cosmology is indeed appropriate because I think the paintings are realities!). In preparation for my work this past summer, I was again steeped in Rudolf Steiner and his ideas about the evolution of consciousness. .
