Experimental Abstract Paintings from the Son
This website features artistic works from both Father and Son.
The Father painted for enjoyment and for relaxation, escaping from the pressures of the "9 to 5" -- painting to recapture feelings of pure freedom when he piloted his P-51 and owned the sky.
The Father's works are those of a "perfectionist." The Father placed attention on the "details" of life. The famous architect, Mies van der Rohe, surely grasped this bit of wisdom. "God is in the details," he was quoted as saying.
The Son, on the other hand, paints with the concerns of a Kandinsky...with a need for expressing the "internal necessity" of art and seeking to become the "Internal Technologist" as described in Jose Arguelles' work The Transformative Vision.
The Son paints with the hopes of reconnecting, through Painting, with that greater part of himself and he paints with a passion along side an urgency that springs unceasingly from his inner depths.
The Son paints with a directive for maintaining sanity amidst the madness and turmoil of his times. The Son paints to remember. Thus the differences between Father and Son.
It is hoped that you will encounter images on this website which both stir your soul and guide you to a state of peaceful resolve.
