2D PAINTINGS, NATURAL MEDIUMS

THINKING ABOUT THINKING
acrylic on linen canvas, 6' by 4', painted in 1984
This piece goes back a number of years.

In this painting the tree along with the clouds behind it form the shape of a brain. The branching fractal pattern of a tree is to me one of the most universal shapes or forms in nature. It is the visual expression of natural systems where nature needs to move something from multiple points to a common point or the reverse. The figure sits in wonder of his own mind and at its connection with nature.
