The fourth painting in my exploration of the nature of numbers.

In geometry, three points define a flat surface. The fourth point defines depth, volume, and 3-dimensional space.  Alchemy describes these four points as the four
elements: air,
fire, water and earth.

The Triad balances the contrasting forces in nature allowing
for creation to spring forth. It invites unlimited perspective and
possibilities, infinite shades of gray between the polar extremes.

On view at Ghost Gallery through December 4th. Purchase inquiries may be directed to [email protected]

The Dyad describes
duality and is
born out of the
Monad, or number one, in 
replication of itself. The resulting geometry is called
the Vesica Pisces, the shape which
gives birth to every other form. “Two” embodies the nature of polarity: night/day, male/female,
heaven/earth, on/off.

“My End is My Beginning” is the first painting in my series of work which explores the nature of numbers. The number one, or the Monad, contains the essence of the
seed, the idea, nucleus and
origin. It is the
black void preceding creation. The ouroboros, or snake biting its tail, is an ancient symbol which represents the infinite constant cycles in nature, introspection and the eternal return.

My solo show at Ghost Gallery is on view until December 4th. 504 E Denny Way, Seattle WA 98122.
