Departure Paintings

These are new pieces in a line of work that deals with ideas about man-made versus nature. These works and my process with them are aesthetically and conceptually in tune with this relationship. I start with one image as a source, and the process takes off from there, adding the element of unpredictability.

Natural versus manmade and chaos versus order.
I visualize wild, uncontrollable forces.
I see settle intricacies versus a violent mess. It is an orchestra.
They both can destroy each other, and they do, from time to time.
I see that one can be embellished and controlled
And artificially made so that it does not fade.
