Dreamers #6 2015-16 oils/canvas 68 x 52"

Revisiting and expanding on the 2005 Dreamers Series. The figures’ transparent bodies are drawn with charcoal, so all layers remain visible. This recent series captures well the synthesis that I intended, of the mediums, themes and images that have pervaded my lifetime of artmaking

Dreamers #7- cocoons 2016 oils/canvas 66 x 60"

Suspended in a dream state, the figures in the Dreamers series from 2005 as well as the figures in the revisited Dreamers Series of 2016-17, are in various stages of cocooning and unwrapping. This image feels nautical and luminescent.

Dreamers #8-transparent 2016 oils/canvas 66 x 61"

The figure's and the cocoons transparent bodies are drawn with charcoal and with oil pastels, so all layers become visible. I see the cocoons here like wire figures of neon light.

Bodyscape #2 (continents) 2017 oils/canvas 54 x 68"

The Bodyscapes Series evolved from the last Dreamers paintings, similar in that they are figurative but more organically abstracted, biomorphic. They also appear to be continents on a global map.
