Subconscious Projections of Harmony

The images below represent paintings that are currently on display at the Art District Gallery in St. Jacobs (1369 King. St., N.)  www.ArtDistrictGallery.org  At the recent opening reception at ADG, I had the wonderful opportunity to share my interpretations of the meanings inherent in the paintings, which I had never put into words previously.  Now that I have, I figured that it’s time to share!


Abstract paintings are my favourite!  Often, in my abstract work, the forms evolve into what I call “shape characters”.  In my mind, these forms represent subconscious thoughts.  My mission in art is to create paintings that add positivity to any environment, thus, these shape characters all have the common goal of co-existing in harmony.

 

Renaissansical Generation Jam
Renaissansical Generation Jam

In Renaissansical Generation Jam, the forms are congregating in order to share ideas to solve a problem.  All are attentive, giving full mindfulness as each idea is presented and explored.  Some of the ideas are red, indicating that the ideas have matured.  One idea is green, and still is being developed and nurtured.  Only one idea is considered by the group at a time.

 

 

The Learning Curves
The Learning Curves

In The Learning Curves, there are two classes of forms, the larger verticals, and the smaller squiggly reds.  All forms are working in harmony to reach a common destination, and the relationship between the verticals and the reds is symbiotic and flourishing.

 

 

Happy Huddle
Happy Huddle

In Happy Huddle, all of the forms are yellow. Only five of the forms have some red individuality rings, because the forms know and love each other so well, that they can perceive and appreciate each other’s uniqueness.  And all the happy goodness bubbles up and collects above them and spreads the love to all.

 

 

Happosition Harmony
Happosition Harmony

In Happosition Harmony, the forms represent two opposing factions that are coming together to resolve their differences.  There is some tension in the situation, but overriding that tension is calmness, and the ability to understand the opposition’s point of view.

 

 

Relearning Gravitational Resistance
Relearning Gravitational Resistance

In Relearning Gravitational Resistance, the forms have created a sort of floating nursery, because sometimes we all need to remember how to let go, relax, and just float.  The beginners are in the safe floating tubs at the bottom of the picture plane, and the more advanced are floating higher, with some nurturing assistance. Ahhhh…


For more information on these paintings, please see my Available Pure Abstracts page!
These five pieces will be on display at Art District Gallery until March 22nd, 2017.

You can see my work in person!
While seeing the photographs of paintings is quite helpful, there’s nothing like being able to see a painting in person! The listings below are all places in the Region of Waterloo where you can go to view actual paintings.  Also, I’m always happy to meet you at any of these places, just send me an email and we can schedule a time to meet.


Chrysalides House of Art
School of Fine Art and Gallery
www.CHRYSALIDESHOUSE.ca
619  Wild Ginger Avenue, unit A2, Waterloo Phone:  519 208-5961

Chrysalides House usually has one or two of my paintings in the Gallery. This location features a gallery, gift shop, an art studio, printmaking studio and creative play lounge, where they offer ongoing weekly fine art classes for both children and adults.


Office of Lou Seguin, Tax Accountant
72 St. Leger Street, Unit 300, Kitchener

This is the space where I previously shared a studio space with Lou Seguin, my good friend and tax accountant.  Happily, Lou is keeping some of my available art on his walls, so the paintings don’t have to sit in storage, and you can visit them any time!  And Lou is a great tax guy if you need one!  (Contact him directly – louseguin@bellnet.ca ) While Lou usually welcomes visitors,  (Well, maybe not so much during tax season unless you’re a client!) it is best to contact me so I can set up a time to meet you there.


Button Factory Arts Gift Shop
Button Factory Arts
25 Regina Street South, Waterloo, ON, N2J 1R8

I usually have some smaller pieces and prints hanging around at the gift shop.  There are soooo many cool items there all year-round.  Christmas season is extra special, as the gift shop overtakes the gallery space in December!

A recent addition to the gift shop is this amazing cabinet!  Scott Crockard has created and is selling custom furniture featuring panels of my work!  So cool!
