The first painting in my “red series” known as Tabula Rosa, which emerged from a fascination with basically two pigments, one intensely bright, the other richly dark. I use other colors, but those two reds are where it begins. I see possible references to blood, sex, birth, and prenatal experience in some of these red paintings, and sometimes these amaze me even as I’m painting. But I seriously doubt that this the ultimate content; I believe I’m unconsciously accessing something like a blank slate of my existence, and the forms I’m painting are basically experiences of the soul.
Whatever the meaning, I do these paintings with complete joy. More details on my website at http://bit.ly/x6WaXe.
