The HEARTFIRE series is a continuous series which began in 1998 – 2005, and exists in various formats and dimensions.  The panels of HEARTFIRE diptych 2005 each measure: 53″ H x 37″ W.

Encounter.

Dialogue.

Conversation.

Radiance.

The curtain parts, and/or, the intensity of the radiant light penetrates and transcends all hindrances.

The work is made of veils of crimson and scarlet reds. The gold was laid down by wall paper brushes and then washed over with the reds, and then the red was washed away- this process was repeated over and over again until the moment when the gold crested and was unlocked. 

The HEARTFIRE series reveals itself upon various light conditions an in relation to the viewer. Like all my paintings, it is never one painting.

My painting is a dance and a sound. My work unfolds in time and in dialogue with the viewer. The viewer is not a passive spectator, but a participant- a dancer.

Private Collections.
