Oil and acrylic on synthetic canvas

"This is a number that functions as an abstract signifier.  It is there in the painting as a formal device and a sign, but it is not specific.  I like that it could be a year in both the future and the past.  It also looks kind of like an address etc.  Incidentally it is the year in which the Great Pyramid of Giza was completed, and this is not incidental.  The forms in the painting are extruded versions of the abstracted words nymphaea cerulean which is the scientific name for the blue lotus which was a sacred ritualistic plant used in Egypt similar to the Kykeon of Greece.  In the end it is simply an abstract picture that tries to reconcile all of these elements along with modernist bio-morphism seen in such artists as Kandinsky, Matta, and Gorky."
