"Beyond Ordinary Experience" — A Monumental Project
Start to finish documentation of my process on a 134" x 186" canvas — based on my "Departures" series — titled "Beyond Ordinary Experience." The finished piece was first exhibited at Portland International Airport — it was on view in the north ticketing lobby at PDX from August 2013 thru October 2015... on display at Gallery 903, Portland from 2016 to 2018… and in early spring 2019, it landed in it's permanent home at Prism Luxury Apartments in Seattle, WA thanks to LAIR Design and NW Art Installation.
I thoroughly enjoy creating provocative and dynamic compositions of abstracted figures that elude labels and convey a sense of community. The creative origin of this series was a celebration of the universal theme of "Common Purpose, Common Ground" — out of many, one. "Beyond Ordinary Experience" was created to inspire the global imaginations of viewers from all walks of life — intersecting in a sense of common place.
