“Within From Without”

onna-whispersI liked the show title that fellow artist Onna Voellmer suggested. Onna’s work is so strong. She uses large bold strokes to describe intimate objects. “Whispers from the Moon” is a series in the Within From Without show at Lotus Contemporary in Scottsdale.


We discussed the title enough and we said: “Let’s go with it”.  My own series of work was titled “Beneath the Darkness”.

I mused over the show title, looking for a hidden meaning, wondering while my mind wandered. What unconscious thoughts create my art?  What is within these pieces trying to come out?  And back to “What makes things sacred”? superphoto_creation_2017-02-14_113220

My mind wanders between the stages of dark and light and at times entering a dreamlike tranquil realm of desert-ocean images and mirages. This series features the light energy of a passing “soul” who dares to infiltrate the darkness with an energy from within…from without.
