Painting the Seen to Reveal the Unseen

“Dreams can be realized when we feel ‘at home’. My magical realism paintings symbolize uplifting qualities of human nature, offer visual delight, and help you nurture dreams by inspiring imagination to soar in harmony with your soul.”

This is a sampling of my original paintings using water-washed walnut oil paint and solvent-free techniques on earth friendly panels. If you would like to see more, please check out my Square Gallery.

What is Magical Realism?

It faithfully portrays the ‘seen’ exterior of objects, bringing hyper-realism to the depiction of mundane subjects. In doing so, the "unseen" spirit of the object reveals itself. This endows all things with a deeper meaning.

The work is never just about what you see. Elements are intuitively brought together like characters in a play, always telling a deeper symbolic story.

It brings common elements together in uncommon ways with unusual points of view. But, everything is presented as though it’s within the realm of the possible, maintaining an illusion of reality.

It accepts the supernatural, as a natural part of reality, thus creating imaginative worlds that seem believable. It often contrasts forward movement with a sense of vast distance; and uses miniature detail, even in expansive paintings.

“Imagery that inspirits visual delight and lighthearted introspection.”

How does Magical Realism Relate to Life

It’s a way to view the world; an idea that all things hold deeper meaning. There is more to life than what’s observably in front of you. It’s about synchronicity - seeing life symbolically, reading signs in daily life as random events that happen for a meaningful reason.

We are each the artist of our life, which when viewed as a painting, is something that you create, however you want (think). Thoughts, feelings, and actions connect you to the realm of possibility.

Life responds by reflecting similar elements back that match your energy; life happens thru you, not to you.

Creating a life you want means being conscious about what you put in your “painting”. Using ‘imagination’ in this way, you draw to you the elements you want to use. You tell your own story, paint your own picture, and are the ultimate creator of your life!

Make it a good one!

My motto, “See the Unseen” is realized thru symbolism, the language of my art.

“Connect with your deeper self, and let your light shine.”
