"Curator’s Comments:  I can’t stop looking at this piece! Psychedelic-Waterfall is truly hypnotic in its use of saturated, high chroma colors.  The figure-ground relationship also confounds the viewer, with little to no area of…"

Play on colour

"Curator’s Comments:    Play on Color is a compelling encaustic work. It came up in a random search, but I believe I commented on your unusual transfer process some time ago in reference to another piece that shows evidence of…"

"Curator’s Comments:    Water Earth Air Fire V came up randomly on the site today, and I was quickly drawn into the sea of tiny light beads against its dark field, suggestive of a concentrated astrological configuration.  The…"

Cul de Sac of Life

"Curator’s Comments:  Coming across Cul de Sac of Life once again, I maintain these are some of the most elegant and poignant works I have seen on the site.  The physical erosion of material objects moves past ones enjoyment of the…"

The Mechanist

"Curator’s Comments:  I came upon your mysterious painting The Mechanist this morning, and am drawn into the ominous narrative.  While the gas-masked figures could possibly be viewed as playful in a comical exaggeration of life, I…"

Many thanks for your kind review of The Greedy.  I am immersed in the very slow process of understanding this complicated poem Commedia, looking at the distant past, how it relates to the alarming present and the personal.  In these my late years it would be amusing to eventually arrive at Paradiso.  The Greedy, as I recall, is commenting on materialism.

Dear Kristen

I liked your suggestion about the Red Queen/White Queen possibly being a split personality.  Perhaps on some level I am expressing that.  However the real reason is not as interesting..perhaps.  "Alice though the Looking Glass" has always been a favorite of mine, very quotable with interesting insights.  The most interesting, to me, is when she is on a hill and looks over the fields, woods and streams below.  She exclaims "why it is a huge game of chess being played over the whole world" (something like that").  I think "yes indeed".  So the painting is based on a chess board but I wanted to break it down and not make it so rigid.  I tried to figure out, more or less how the moves might work out, for example the knight has moved from his starting spot to forth spot from the left second row down.  The whole piece could be savagely taken apart if one is a chess player.  Different images play the queen, king etc, the pawns remain the same.  That is where the fun was for me.

Come to think of it I have not really answered your question. Of course in chess they are in opposition but perhaps they also can represent the split personality. 

It may need further work.

Many thanks for your kind review of White Queen/Red Queen.  It is very interesting to read a review of a work and consider ideas that I had not previously thought of.
