The painting in the flyer above:
Acrylic on paper, 21.5”x29” The ground connecting the trees contain math and physics equations that have changed the world in ways alchemists did not imagine back in the 16thcentury when they drew the original arbor philosophica or tree of knowledge. To plant the philosopher’s tree is to stimulate the creative imagination.
Above: "Coming Home" A swallow symbolizes the successful end of a journey. In the early days of sailing, English sailors sported barn swallow tattoos as the sighting of swallows often meant they were close to home. The abstract landscape is a stylized version of the 15-17thcentury Japanese gold panels that inspired this painting. Traditional Japanese gold panels often had elaborately embroidered silk borders and peaceful landscapes on gold leaf backgrounds. $345
