More Than Meets the Eye

composite portrait

There are paintings within paintings in each of my recent compositions.  Each part is whole and complete as a design with its own spatial dimensions and perspectives.  This gives to the composite a multi-spatial richness and depth no single perspective could provide.

In each one there are four to five distinct perspectives, which stimulate separate quadrants of the brain, and then unite, in one common focus.  The whole composition is so well united, both in perception and art, that without dissecting the parts from which they were assembled, one would never know.  Far beyond our visual sensation, the mind is also stimulated into admitting its active and major role in orchestrating all our perceptions.  Much more is brought to the picture than the eyes can see.

Each original painting is accompanied by a design and creative journal that records all stages of development from inception to completion.  Each segment is a complete painting unto itself, with its own unique perspective.  Typically, one focuses up left, up right, down left, down right, with one common focal point to unite them all. Together, they create a full-sensory aliveness that is a great deal more than three-dimensional perception.  Each painting is meticulously composed and executed to allow for this effect.
