The Triad

The Triad

 

‘The Triad’ is a revolving stage of life, letting go and embracing.  The older woman represents reality and acceptance only gained in maturity, while there is spontaneity and eagerness in the youthful woman.  The third painting is a place where we begin and to which we return.  This represents the quiet calm of reflection and wisdom.  Has she returned or is she only beginning?

The World is a Stage

The World is a Stage

Chess is but a fleeting game in the sand washed away by the incoming tide.  The Queen (the organic protagonist) is enjoying her short reign, unaware that the glass vase is encasing her life.  The ‘Circle of Life’ is only made whole by the reflection in the mirror encircling the coral.   Found in the Great Barrier Reef the bleached coral engages the beginning of life forms and celebrates its death.  The Pawn and the King yet to be played are patiently waiting on pieces of broken reflections.   Watching from the top of the frame, humanity is entrapped by technology, the 21st Century’s new religion.  Is this history repeating itself for the sake of drama?

The humor can not escape the viewer.  The look on the faces of the animals is very endearing.  But on closer inspection, one realizes that this is a confusing moment in these animals’ lives.  Since I have lived in Idaho I have always been curious about the abandoned barns and homesteads that I see in the distance.  I have wondered about the hopes and dreams of the individuals that built these places and walked away from them and why.  What does the farmer do with his friends?
