About the Creation of "Flight 1"

Updated: Aug 10, 2022

One of my primary intentions when creating works of art is the need to push the limits beyond 2 dimensional art. the unique use of 24 karat gold leaf is his was of bringing 'perception' to this work. When viewed from different angles around the painting, the light constantly changes due to the delicate use of the gold leaf.

"Flight 1" represents an incredible experience in my life just after a near death experience including the 'language' that seemed to flow and change form around me - much like music."

Continuing the representation of my experience of the "duality" of the spiritual world in which I gained a momentary glimpse and back to the physical world - everything would change to me for a lifetime. This painting depicts the complete submergence into the spiritual world's language from this side - in which I now experience spiritual information This painting is one of a series of paintings in this theme and available for gallery appearances or sale to a private collection.
