Meditations on Pink
My painting practice is an extension of my decades long yoga and meditation practices. My imagery and approaches are inspired by my loves of abstraction, geometry and spirituality. Using a combination of acrylics and pencil, I work on canvas, wood or board. I always employ various techniques, typically those used by gestural and geometric abstractionists.
I loved pink as a child, and since my sophomore year of undergraduate painting, I have been enamored with all shades of pink paint. In this new body of work, I made the color pink the focal point, or, as we say in yoga, the drishti.
According to symbolists, pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others, and it represents unconditional love and understanding. It signifies affection, caring, compassion, friendship, harmony, inner peace, and approachability. Pink is associated with passion, good health and success. As you view the work, I hope you feel and absorb, consciously and subconsciously, these very things.
In loving memory of my father,
