The Portals series is an evolution of the Chaos & Order series. When viewed in person, people commented that the Chaos & Order paintings were “mesmerizing” and seemed to possess a healing quality.
The comments resonated because I had been going through my own healing process during that series, so I began to contemplate how to more acutely transfer and magnify the serenity I was feeling into my work.
Shortly after, I encountered an intuitive woman named Amy Satori. Amy described my paintings as portals and suggested they had the ability to transform energy; adding specific elements with intention would filter out negativity in the surrounding area.
I loved the notion and decided to paint two kinds of portals for this series – ones that have a vertical or horizontal bar spanning the width or length of the canvas, which are intended to provide access to wisdom and insight, and paintings that have a dot, which are intended to filter negative energy in order to bring balance to a space.
The peripheral geometry and chosen colors in the paintings support these intentions.

You may have noticed the human body in the painting. The black line work depicts both male and female organs, the stomach, and lungs. The black dot between the stomach and lungs in intended to release and remove negative energy from within the body.
