The abstract paintings are a brand new addition to my body of work.
These pieces interpret natural elements like waves, vines and birds into simple
gestural brush strokes. These forms are expressed in a boundless space,
free to grow, float and fly. I want the viewer to internalize this sense
of expansiveness and bring it into their own lives.

THE BRAIN PROJECT
Baycrest Health Sciences, a world leader in brain health and aging, is raising funds and awareness of dementia and other brain related diseases.
They've had over 100 brain sculptures painted by local artists, on display at various locations in downtown Toronto.
Later they will be sold to sponsoring organizations or collectors worldwide.
Here's the brain I painted. It;s on display at Bau-Xi Photo (Dundas street West and McCaul).
"Following the public exhibit in Toronto, all of the brains will be transported to Yorkdale where they will be put on public display from Tuesday, October 18th through to October 31st. This exciting installation gives shoppers the opportunity to experience Yorkdale’s new 300,000 square foot expansion for the first time along with the first complete exhibition of the brains from The Brain Project! "
Description of the piece:
This 'Fertile Mind' is covered with lush greenery, vibrant flowers and a host of birds indicative of a miniature ecosystem. Vegetation pollenates the mind with fresh life and ideas while the birds carry strings of thought, connecting one busy cluster of growth to another. The greenery contains all kinds of flowers, from herbal remedies to spiritual lotus flowers to the poisonous berries of the Nightshade plant. A healthy ecosystem embraces renewal as equally as decay. Problems arise when some aspect of the system falls out of balance. With the brain, there are the physical and chemical imbalances but also the psychological issues that may be equally debilitating. With a view to disease and trauma, the vegetation that wraps around this brain can also be seen as an invasive and parasitic overgrowth that feeds off it’s host.
