"GRAVITATIONAL SLIDE OR GRAVITATIONAL LENSING
The gravity of a great body, such as our moon, refracts light
so that a star that is seen near the moon; is, in actuality, behind it.

MANIPULATING SPACE, TIME AND MATTER
The four clear domes, in photo above, were placed on an active paint experiment.
The domes manipulate time by arresting the development of a painting to capture that moment.  
The upper dome also manipulates space as one follows the blue and white streak
from right to left to see a place under the dome and its’ actual point of origin.


My Speed Elements palette, (neither oil, nor acrylic), demands that the countless outside influences are considered.  This "actualization" challenges my imagination to become more aware of the real world around me and the connection of all things further resulting in what I call a "Multiple Oneness" and how that made manifest in "Time Released performances" and my forth coming book - "The Conduct of Paint", Actualizing Earth, Paint, Self."  This inclusive palette, Speed Elements, led to always attempting to create a balance between my inner and outer self and led to research and consideration of such disciplines as: Nature, Cosmology, Physics, Earth Science... led to logically replacing the word paint for each of these subjects to create the art books I sought.

I negotiate and navigate paint like a river,
yet I know its source.
