Genesis

Genesis

"Passion is the genesis of genius." - Tony Robbins

Genesis is the point at which something comes into existence. This painting is a bold re-imagining of creation of the universe. It reveals the exact moment in which light and color were conceived. This powerful piece is a tribute to the handiwork of any genius. Whether it be art, music, poetry, architecture, etc., the root of any idea or concept is faith and passion.

May your undiscovered passion come into existence and bring you joy.

Threshold

July 21st, 2018

Threshold

“This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year’s threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future; the place of caught breath, the door of a vanished house left ajar…” – Margaret Atwood, Eating Fire: Selected Poetry 1965-1995

This bold painting challenges us to simplify our objectives. The complex essence of sea and sky is set down as two distinct elements. We are immediately drawn to the line that separates them--to the threshold, the place just between. This work strives to delineate this intangible area where nature cannot be broken apart. A finite stripe linking heaven and earth causes us to define our perception of each.

Think of the two elements as your spiritual and practical beings. Can we move easily from our soul’s intention to reality? Can we cross the threshold of our imagination and return to put these ideas to productive use? We must push ourselves to the threshold to discover and fulfill our authentic soul.

Reef

"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The beauty of life lies beneath the surface. Sometimes what we see on the exterior is only a fraction of what is all there. When you look at the ocean from a hill, you see a vast expanse of water. But when you dive into the depths of it, you experience the hallmark of the spirit.

This painting is called 'Reef' as it illuminates the depths of beauty in the sea and brings imagination to the spirit.

May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.

“Work until you no longer have to introduce yourself.” – Unknown

Whether it is with business relationships or social interactions, networking is a building block of society. A few reasons for making connections would be to learn something new, inspire and help others, or to remind us of what is truly important.

This painting is a powerful display of connection. The invasion of the red paint symbolizes influence and determination as it boldly travels across the canvas to make itself known.

With boldness and a genuine interest in others, making long-lasting connections is easier than you think!

Passage

Passage

“The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?” – Pablo Picasso

The above quote is amusing and true. I could say the same thing. I leave it up the viewer to decide what makes sense in my paintings according to their world view. I like to create an atmosphere through my paintings in which the viewer can determine the origin and destination.

This painting 'Passage' appears to have layers leading to a destination of energy and happiness in this nonsensical world. The yellow produces joy and flows through like a geyser, saturating the calmness of the other colors, bringing the sense back into the painting.

Create your passage by designing your happiness to flow through the parts of your life that make no sense.

Cascade

Cascade

“When you drop any new idea in the pond of the world, you get a ripple effect. You have to be aware that you will be creating a cascade of change.” – Joel A. Barker

Change is inevitable for all of us. We’re constantly evolving, developing, and progressing toward the next phase of our lives. The world is always moving around and growing older. Weather patterns are sporadic and continue to fluctuate. Science and technology seem to procure results more quickly these days with new studies and findings. Art is continuous, edgy, and flows through main stream media every day with new ideas and sprouting concepts. Change is everywhere, every day.

The painting 'Cascade' is the creation of change. This glowing torrent is earth mixing itself up in space, creating a graceful energy for its inhabitants to emulate. Thus concluding that change or transformation begins with the universe and continues with us.

Embrace each moment as it evolves and live each day with the reminder that change is essential.

Daydream

Daydream

"Well it's not just a daydream if you decide to make it your life." - Train

Daydreaming is a nice way to pass the time. It can also be very effective in developing new ideas or concepts. Studies suggest that daydreaming can increase productivity, improve thinking, and sometimes alleviate anxiety or sadness.

This painting called 'Daydream' is an abstract conception of wishful thinking. This colorful examination in reverie is a bubble bath of disengagement.

Though building castles in the sky might seem like a waste of time, it actually induces creativity and confidence. Don't quit your daydream!

Cosmos

Cosmos

"I realized then that even though I was a tiny speck in an infinite cosmos, a blip on the timeline of eternity, I was not without purpose." - R.J. Anderson, Ultraviolet

Finding the meaning of life and why we exist is an integral part of our survival. We will spend a huge portion of our lives searching for our purpose. Maybe we were created to explore that lingering question, "Why am I here?" It certainly will not be solved in a blog or a motivational quote on our favorite social media website. It's only through a series of life experiences, growth, and the evolution of our souls that we will one day begin to understand why we were born.

The colors in this painting derive from that deep place beyond the Cosmos where the answers are within each of our hearts. Some of us may have it figured out early in our lives and others may take decades. Never stop searching. Ask questions, listen to your soul, and explore the possibilities.

Voltage

Voltage

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla

“Without discipline in spiritual pursuits, the central nervous system doesn’t have a chance to adjust and grow with the increased demand. It would be like putting a high voltage into a small bulb – it is bound to explode.” – Sivananda Radha Saraswati

Art is impulsive without apology. It either electrifies or repels. It can influence or evoke resistance. Art is power-driven.

This painting is a captivating study of electricity. A voltage that releases us from the notion of confinement. This piece infuses energy and expresses liberty.

What is something that electrifies you or gets you charged up?

Convergence

March 23rd, 2018

Convergence

“In painting you must give the idea of the true means of the false.” – Edgar Degas

This painting speaks to the theme of unifying opposing ideas and concepts. Through the process of convergence, we see that the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts. In this painting, Ralph White sought to expand the concept of the spiritual journey beyond the individual to the communal.

'Convergence' displays a lovely color palette that blends reds, purples and oranges in a harmonious tableau. The colors work together and complement each other. There is a demarcation, however, right down the center of the painting. Careful study reveals that while reds are found on both sides of the painting, purples are relegated to the left and oranges to the right. There are two different forces at work here, both relevant and vital, yet distinctly opposed.

How often in life are we faced with this sort of dichotomy? While we are faithful to our beliefs, we must also find ways to work together to remain productive and not dysfunctional. In this painting, White suggests that divergent beings can remain authentic while blending together to create combined beauty. The trick is in being able to acknowledge and affirm the relevance of each person’s intention. If intentions are honorable, then cooperation can occur.
