When I am in Washington DC at the National Gallery, particularly, I am pleased to see the work of Pat Steir, Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still and Christopher Wilmarth.

I find the works of those particular artists, among others, to be so powerful and reflective, transporting me to a state of wonder and wholeness, between here and there, a kind of contemplative mode of being. Call it the sublime.  Each artist draws the viewer to them with what appears to be the simplest of ideas, rain, deep fields of color, minimalism and, in each a gesture – finding that chord within each of us.

The drops, scientifically speaking, are considered undercooled or supercooled liquid forms. In their works I sense a cadence, a slow motion movement, describing a place between time or place – so slow it almost stops, like the drops.  As Doris van Drathen put it of Steir’s work but it could be meant for all I have an affinity for…”We find ourselves in the middle of a field of forces of pure being that reveals itself in rhythm and sound”. I think of the sound of my drop installations reverberating in me as I place one next to the next, next to the next and on.  The work is who I am.  It is a precious experience that I hope the viewer shares, articulated by this deeper understanding or acknowledgement as I continue in this tradition to describe my dreams of paradise.
