top Composition #429 (Epiphany)

My Epiphany:

I have come to realize, or see in some abstracted manner, my new series of paintings are a reflection of my life.

I was given up at birth and adopted by loving parents (my parents). Even after their deaths I never wanted to search out my birth parents because it felt like a betrayal.

This conflict shows up in my art in the fragmented and broken patterns that are sometimes incomplete and unresolved.

Now in my 70's, I see that not only my current work, but all my art has undertones of this somewhat separated life and loss of self.

Everything I've done, the way I connect or don't connect with people, places and things are all there to keep me safe and from being lost.

The art shows me this - I don't believe I saw it until I read something written by an artist friend about himself for an exhibition I curated in 2017. His words, filled with emotion and honesty opened something in me and I will be forever grateful.

And here I thought I was just throwing paint.
