Last Voyage of the Rainbow Warrior

I cast a new vision for our world. Like bleached coral growing back, to health; nature is last to bat.

In my work, I bear witness to human efforts to create a better world. In these brightly colored and textural paintings, I focus on the beauty of our reefs and life forms.

I recognize how we as humans are destroying our environment as we simultaneously work to rebuild and preserve it. I accept that I am part of this chain, and yet, I am a difference-maker.

These 3-dimensional, sculptural paintings were created by mounting re-used Styrofoam pieces to the canvas and “icing” them with my signature acrylic modeling paste mixture. This process involves mixing my painterly “cement-like” substance of paint, modeling paste and sand, and forming coral-like sculptures with a frosting bag, and “frosting” the painting into what resembles a coral reef.

When I create, I think of the beautiful things of the world of which I am so attracted and desire to consume. The paintings are marked by transformation: the constant pull of consumerism is satiated only by the incessant drive of creation and growth. 

In my work, I reference the anti-institutional environmental institution Greenpeace and the demise of one of their vessels. In doing so, I am acknowledging the fight. I bear witness to human efforts to create a better world.

I use bright colors and coral structures to form ridges and rifts, depicting coral reefs as powerful, epic, and extravagant, but also delicate. My reason for creating these paintings is to create a new awareness of our environment, and hopefully to inspire action to care for it.

Georgia O’Keeffe let us stare at tiny flowers blown up larger than life, and I build upon her efforts and take it one step further as I draw the viewer into the literal tiny spaces to willfully examine the small, the intricate; the shiny and the colorful. The macro aspect of these paintings zoom-out to encompass a larger view; you can see everything all at once, but one must lean in again to see the wonder inside each small coral-like formation.

In between is a paradise of beautiful blue islands, suggesting a bird’s eye view: “The Big Picture”. When we zoom out of our daily lives which involve binary choices like good or evil, or strength or laziness, we can see “The Bigger Picture” and even our goals, hopes and dreams. My hope for our planet is to once again arrive at a pristine environment for all in which to live and enjoy. I believe that the Divine, as signified by the lightning streak of hot pink has interceded for us, making the benevolent and beneficial choices possible if we just listen to the voice of the Spirit and choose Life.\u003c\/p\u003e"}
