The cone, rendered in these paintings as organically formed triangular vessels, is a geometric form encompassing the concept of one (its point), from which emerges infinity, as its ever expanding form reaches out away from its center. While the body is finite, consciousness is infinite. The breath is what links the body to consciousness.
These paintings investigate the shape of the cone as breath. They are portraits of breath formed through painting and color experiments in the studio.
