Complex Rhythm

My latest painting, “Complex Rhythm”, is now on display at the ARTiculate show at Gallerie M (in the Intercontinental Hotel, downtown Milwaukee).  I just added it to my gallery page and I want to show it here too:

In this painting I have shifted the focus from the center of a circle to the area of intersection between two circles.  In sacred geometry this area of intersection is called a Vesica (or Vesica Piscus), and it’s an extremely important figure as it is a kind of portal through which all the more complex geometry flows. It is a symbol of the intersection of inner and outer experience, and is connected to the symbol of the Fish, used to represent Christ in Christianity.
