I can remember once when I was younger being at a fair and enjoying doing spin art where you would pour and drip paint on spinningpaper. I loved that concept: putting the art in God's hands; randombeauty with lots of colors and energy.
Throwing paint is a spiritual, ethereal, cathartic, kinetic experience for me. When I paint I find myself in a state of ecstasy, constantly praying and meditating. I enter a hypnotic trance, a dynamic involvement in the creation - a unique, spontaneous, and unrepeatable event.
I become infused with the same spirit I imagine Jackson Pollock tapped into, except I use DayGlo colors and reflect the energy of the times I live in.
Pollock observed, "The modern painter cannot express his age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture. Each age finds its own technique".
There are so many possibilities to explore in throwing DayGlo paint: the various color combinations, the types of effects used, the amount of paint, the speed, angle, force of the throw etc. It is an ongoing process and a journey that never ends, an unlimited, expanding universe of magical serendipity (quantum theory at its best).
This work is also partly inspired by the M-theory (the theory of everything ushered in by Edward Witten). The paintings represent the tenth dimension string theory, which states there is a parallel universe. M-theory also states that when two or more different tenth dimension membranes collided they created the Big Bang and our whole expanding universe. The globs of paint in my paintings can theoretically represent these different membranes. They are images of the moment right before the Big Bang with black light/white light parallel universes. Our reality=white light / black light represents the tenth dimension parallel universe.
Paintings can be viewed in black light, as well as white light, and can be hung in four ways. In a coming show of my art, the gallery owner plans to show the art 5 minutes with black light and 5 minutes in regular light, or have an interactive switch so people can switch between the two different light effects themselves.
It pleases me to know that my art has the ability to make people happy. My art is a manifestation of my energy and consciousness.
