This body of work reflects a world that exists deeply in my cognitive awareness. Observation of nature provides me with organic interaction of color, shape and form. It is the momentary effects of light, air and water movement that I use to develop my compositions. Without a preconceived notion of color or design I allow natural rhythms to take over. Strokes and hues become defined as deconstruction turns into form. Contemplation gives birth to concrete images and unification of chaos is the matter of course. Formalist attitudes give way to images of our ever-changing environment through visions reflecting its ebbs and flows.

"With the disastrous exit of England from the European Union, Paris is increasingly establishing itself as the true capital of art, as it should have always been. A city that frames art like no other and has a population highly devoted to fine art."
"We had our vernissage last Friday, September 1st, 2023, at the charming Sorbonne Space, with a large audience in attendance."
"The following day, we could confirm what was already known to us: the high volume of visitors to the exhibition, as well as the passing public, which not only had a significant presence but also had a strong appreciation for art. Great new clients and contacts are emerging from there."
"People in Paris LOVED it!"
- Robert Parcus
"This work changed my life."
"These works have a soul."
"I can feel the energy!"
"The texture is amazing ... they are so tactile!"

Sapphire Spark came as a vision while on a trip to the Caribbean island of Saint-Martin. The colors of the ocean waters were unbelievable; azure, cerulean, teal, and sapphire waters contrasted with the powdery pearl white sand where lizards ran freely. The sun penetrated the shallow water and reflected off the sea bottom, making the blue bright and abundant. An additional contributing factor was the lack of algae, and therefore, no greens, only perfect blues. The visions rolled around in my mind until Sapphire Spark appeared; it was as clear as the Caribbean waters that I had seen.
