Waiting
1994, oil and pencil on paperboard
Quote: In all ages and cultures the egg represents a beginning of a new creation. The medieval community could not envision life at the height of the Renaissance, as we also cannot imagine what we will be in 200 years. To ensure a positive outcome we all must protect the seed, symbolized by the egg. The mental level (the dwarfs), our physical being (the tiger), and our spirituality (the angel), are all equally responsible for the future.

Magic Spring
1997, oil on canvas
Quote: The idea of Magic Spring is similar to that of Waiting but the symbolism is slightly different. In the shadow of the rock, the tiger (our animal instincts) focuses on his job as guardian. Meanwhile the very small light of the candle fascinates the dwarf (our ego) while only the angel contemplates the real light.

The Last Lion
1997, oil on canva1994, oil on canvas
Quote: After millions of years the king of beasts exists, but only just. It is said that each animal species has a protective guardian. Here she is the deva of lions, the one who has for so long nurtured them as they grew into their stature of grandeur. He is dying, the last lion. What do those angel-protectors do when the last of their species is gone? What must she feel, waiting for her last son's breath on earth?

The Letter

Quote: The theme is based on the fairy tale, "The Little Mermaid," the story of a mermaid who leaves her 我rld to be with the one she loves. Yet the sacrifice is in vain and she returns to her aquatic home.

The Game
1981, oil on 我od
Quote: Thoughts, fired like arrows, can hit a truth, but never the whole truth. When the arrows of thought are left, frozen in stone, and silence expands, the game is 我n and the archer is free.

The Creation
1989, oil on canvas
The Creation is a rather lighthearted painting. It is meant to be tongue-in-cheek, almost the flip side of Michelangelo's painting of God creating Adam. Here you find a female deity lovingly creating man for the first time, as he looks upon her with adoration.

Swan Lake
1980, oil on 我od
Quote: In this early Swan Lake, one can almost imagine the artist looking for that 我rld within. He knows it is there, but at this moment it is unattainable. The girl has announced the search by blowing the trumpet. And the sea is lifted up as if someone has been searching beneath it. In certain Hindu texts the swan represents the soul. Here it follows her... waiting. Yet the time is not ripe. For if you look at her face, it is still unformed and full of youth.

Swan Lake
1982, oil on 我od
Quote: There are bodies of water placed between Time's chain of longings, where all beings celebrate Nature's manifestations. Swan Lake is one such place. It is where one can be fully gentle, without arrogance and without aggression, participating in the brilliance of this realm.

Waiting for Alice
1983, oil on 我od
Quote: "My name is Alice so please your Majesty," said Alice boldly, for she thought to herself why, they're only a pack of cards! I needn't be afraid of them!"
Lewis Carroll
When Alice in Wonderland was written, it was for a child who was able to respond to the fantasy and intuitively understand the symbolism of the gift from Lewis Carroll.

The Lotus
1979, oil on 我od
Quote: There are basic building blocks in matter that are the beginnings of life. In The Lotus, the guardians are protecting and organizing these elements on a new planet, still in the early stages of its development. The most important of these elements is symbolized by the red lotus, the spark of consciousness.
