By Day and By Night

We often think in dualities, hard/soft, hot/cold, etc. This new pair of paintings explores one place but at different times – By Day and By Night.  Both paintings present a breaking wave – the first painting, By Day, uses the spiral, symbol of energy going out and returning, as a decorative transparent border along the bottom of the painting. A close-up of the distant waves is below:

By Night, with its stars and constellations, explores a different sense of distance and energy. Again, there is the energy of a breaking wave, but this time it is contrasted with the great distance s of space. At the same time, the droplets of water find their echo in the stars. Near/far, day/night. One doesn’t exist apart from the other. Both are in a state of becoming…..Below are close-ups of By Night. Enjoy!
