36” x 60”, blue acrylic pearls on specially-prepared canvas, 2012
Featuring Liz Ashley
Ascending out of water and stone to a new world. ASCENDANT, my first figurative painting for 2012, features the beautiful art model Liz Ashley. We did a photo shoot in Las Vegas, NV in 2008 together. This is my third painting featuring Liz. Prior artworks: Luxe and Ardor.
ASCENDANT is about the beauty and symmetry of the ascension process from a world of water and stone to the next world. Encoded in the artwork are many alchemical references. Elements and dimensions point to the migration to a higher level – the next evolution of thought and form.
