Art as an onion
I hope my work doesn't make you cry. But I love to build layers into my pieces. My first encounter with you, my viewers, is the impression of colors, shapes and arrangement. But then I am hoping you will be able to look deeper. I often work in metaphor and symbols. Certainly I have my own intention built into the work but it is always open to your interpretation. More than the question of what does it looks like to you, I hope you look for layers of meaning. Like an onion, as you peel away one layer, there should be another-and possibly another and another. Viewing on different days, in different moods, may unlock more than you expected.
