“A wrinkle in Time” 2012
16″ x 20″
Arches Paper, mixed media
This piece was inspired by Madeline L’Engle’s book: A wrinkle in Time, and reminds me of the sense of I have of the universe being luminous vibrating light of every color. That in this universe our heart felt thought manifests in form and experiences. It comes and goes. And like a wrinkle in time we can collapse time, travel many light years, light folding the universe, as if it were a string, creating a wrinkle in time.
title: ” permissible delights of the soul”* 2012

“Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.”
Johannes Sebastian Bach
Bill & were listening to a piece from one of the Golberg Variations last night. Woke up hearing it. Like the notion of mirror images, going toward each other, one going up, the other down. Cannot really re-create a complex theory of this, but its what I hear in it.
Sometimes think I have a art split personality, or certainly many visual aspects, at any rate this is one of my new abstract pieces, that will show at my up coming exhibit. The other self/aspect paints images which tend to be somewhat ‘narrative’. Perhaps akin to the Goldberg variations. Maybe the title shoud be ‘homage to Bach’ 🙂
