My abstract work is inspired by impressionist studies of things of the natural world. Break was born of a study of waves crashing into a rocky shore, titled Tenacious and is part of my series of the same name.
I love studying water. It can literally take millions of forms, from gentle swirls to destructive tsunamis and so many more. As I worked on the study Tenacious, what most moved me was the way water seems to have a mind of its own. It will make its way no matter the obstacle. In the case of Tenacious, when the rocky shore gets in its way, it simply changes form and continues on its path over and through the rocks.
This lesson from the natural world is demonstrated to us in so many ways with water and many other of earth’s elements. The seeming determination to make its way. We as human individuals may need to change our approach, or perhaps alter the path, but we must continue to advance. If we don’t, we can become stagnant or worse, simply evaporate.
The lesson from the natural world here is to find a way. If need be, make a Break and find a way.
