My work with spirals started back in college with a series of large abstract paintings that consisted of lots of spiral work. This was influenced by my study and love of art history, the ancient Greeks in particular.
For the Greeks it symbolizes the creation of life and vitality. The spiral movement is seen everywhere in nature, from ancient shells to the formation of galaxies. Pinwheels, seashells, fingerprints, and even the DNA molecule are all shaped like a spiral. It represents in various ways both solar and lunar forces, wind and water. It is used repeatedly in Greek art and architecture.
I love SPIRALS. Our paths are not linear, not strait. We continually some back to things we thought we understood and see deeper truths.
