Ocean Series - Artist's Statement

Living on the southern California coast, I can’t help but be influenced by the ocean. Its physical enormity, emotional symbolism and sheer beauty strike me daily. As a source of allusion it is limitless – the ocean as subconscious can be explored indefinitely as can the ocean of emotions that exist within me.

In 2010 I completed a series of Ocean paintings. This exploration very directly fed my current series, Consciousness.

Somber Ocean speaks to those lonely, pensive moments when we look out over a mental horizon and scan the vastness and complexity of our lives.
