Air connects everything, it carries change and communication. It is also elemental wind energy, the subtle energy upon which the vitality of of the body and consciousness depend. It is related to curiosity, intellectual flexibility, judgement and the wisdom of accomplishment. In terms of painting I consider air as the energy, the vitality and intelligent flow in my work. It is the wind of rhythm weaving throughout the painting and it is the dynamic or subtle pulse that holds the composition. Air is part of space as the pulse and flux of intelligence.
