"Curator’s Comments:     This flowing mixed media work appeared randomly on the site for me today, and I was struck by the abstraction of these first few pieces in the context of your highly representational images.  They appear…"

The Wooded Path

"Curator’s Comments:     The resonance of this Bavarian landscape posted a few years back remains because of the quality of light and still space.  The central vanishing point draws the viewer into the path as we are enveloped by…"

Slab of Existence

"Curator’s Comments:     I continue to return to this curious piece to admire its silky, and vaguely disturbing abstract forms.  Perhaps the visual discomfort comes from an uneasiness in identifying the suggestive figurative…"

Zen Garden 08, night view

"Curator’s Comments:     Zen Garden 08, night view is a pleasurable form; as much image as object. The installation which includes an artificial light source no doubt creates a glowing pictorial field.  It is a bit difficult for…"

After the Canaries Left the Coal Mines, the Mountains Began to Leave Appalachia

"Curator’s Comments:     I find the title of this straightforward painting to be quite poetic. The hard defining break of the diptych format separates the ground from the sky, visually adding to the notion that the mountains would…"

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.
