Oil Painting "Fractured" at North Carolina Museum of Art Auction

My oil painting has been selected for the 2012 Art of the Auction event for the North Carolina Museum of Art.  in Raleigh, NC.
The auction preview is March 30, 2012. Then, April 14, 2012 the actual auction takes place with an exciting evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and silent and live auctions with all proceeds benefiting Museum exhibitions and education programs.


The oil painting “Fractured” transforms a flat surface into a space with great depth and relief. The background splits in half mimicking the split of the solid mass in the foreground. This fractured shape reveals a hint orange oozing from its cracks creating a fine aura and reminds the viewers they are looking at paint. The large solid mass with a gaping orifice sitting in a quiet expanse creates a mysterious feeling of solitude.

As I paint, the work evolves as it is being created and I am open to whatever happens- always looking to transcend concrete thought and expand the consciousness so that I may know something beyond what I knew the day before.
