Reflection on pattern and abstraction of the subconscious

Influences of India, 2019-

Inspired by an observation of visual or modal pattern, these works embody the color, flow, and generational connection observed during a trip to Gujarat, India. To further ruminate on the deeper cultural implications of our time in India, the Hindu goals of human life and the tension found between those goals are expressed as the names of the larger paintings, Dharma (righteousness, moral values), Artha (prosperity, economic values), Kama (pleasure, love, psychological values), Moksha (liberation, spiritual values), and Karma (action, work or deed where the intent influences the future of the individual). The end results are abstractions of a dialogue between this meaning and the observations embedded in my subconscious.
