NEST: An Autobiography
NEST is a 48"X48" painting now in a private collection in Toronto. Nest is a mixed media painting on canvas with wood shavings floating in a flowing radius of oil paint. The abstract radial composition focuses on the circle of life and the idea that life is composed of many small pieces or experiences. The piece has a very deep back-story and a very elaborate, mathematical drawing was created in the creative process prior to the painting, which documented the course of autobiographical perspective. The painting simplifies the idea into a circle however the complexity lies in the deliberate complexity of the rich intertwined tapestry of scientific colour.
