Veil The Veil series of paintings are invented landscapes. They depict atmospheric spaces
inhabited by natural forms and archetypal elements, using colors that hold
emotional resonance for me. The gold is transformative and represents a sort of
alchemical force intersecting the plane of the image, weaving through, in and
out to the edges. The intentionally
non-specific quality of the images allow for the viewer to experience the work
viscerally and interpret what they see, wind, water, birds, foliage, clouds,
etc. In this work, I am trying to evoke the mysterious emotional quality of how
we experience space and archetypal atmospheres that feel familiar yet unknowable.
Flights calligraphic, graffiti-like, abstract marks, personal, mythological symbol systems (for now, birds, nets, boats, mountains, fire, trees), and a metaphysical sense of "place" related to thresholds, transitional spaces, using "threshold" colors that hold emotional resonance for me (deep red-violet-brown, turquoise, earth colors, white, black, gold, scarlet red)
Threshold Transitional spaces, an image that is just perceptible as being "something" but ultimately unknowable, teetering on the threshold of existence.
