Original Contemporary Abstract Painting with custom aluminum welded frame.
With Swimmers, I’ve created two strong overlapping independent patterns that bind to create organic synchronicity. Tight ripples project human anxiety felt while negotiating open water. Not an emotion I speculate our mammalian sisters and brothers experience. Despite the hours of open water swimming and experience I have training for triathlons, this anxiety naturally exists. AKA survival.
The longer, flowing lines draw us in for the serenity, free floating and rhythmic sensations; slowing heart rate, epidural tingling, weightlessness and balance.
Joining them together are mammalian vessels of land and sea. Pod of dolphin. Whales. Triathletes competing for space and propulsion. The constant is the variable. Synchronicity.
