Created simultaneously with Energy, Triangulated Spheres came from a psychological influence—family dynamics, with a pattern generated by two primary “mates” and two offspring. The pattern regenerates along a mathematical principal, or not, as space and borders allow.

The Last of the Cherry Blossom, painting and sculpture

The Last of the Cherry Blossom

Painting and wall sculpture, oil on panel, 46″x46″x2″, oil on six steel hemispheres, 4″, 5″, and 8″ diameter, 2009

Drawn from a quote from David Mitchell, “The last of the cherry blossom… when it’s perfect, it falls….So it’s only absolutely perfect when it’s falling through the air, this way and that, for the briefest time…”  A shadow created within the two-dimensional painting plane brings the path of the blossom into the viewer’s space, while the representational form in the background serves as a specific response.
