Initially, the inspiration for painting, "Illuminations" came from the graceful curvatures and scrolling patterns in the center medallion of Persian rugs, but later my interest was shifted to etchings on glass stoppers, chandelier balls and geometrical outlines on cut glass. My Process for making these images was similar to Rorschach inkblots. I draw with acrylic paint on one side of a folded paper, press and reopen to discover symmetry within fantastical and biomorphic configurations. The complex arrangement of milky colored paint, linear lines and delicate stains reveals multiple layers of depth and manifests into a picture quilt of ghostly patterns.
