Night Visitors

Paintings inspired by the Cereus "Queen of the Night" (Epiphyllum Oxypetalum).
Produced since 2007

For several years I have been painting the night blooming cereus Queen of the Night the flower that briefly blooms then wilts and dies in the still of the night unknown to most.

Fascinated by the night sky, by the secrets of the night, by the drama of this blossom's life and death within the span of a few hours, I am now more than ever compelled to explore the mystery of this phenomenon.

With my new series of paintings called "Night Visitors", I want to share with the viewer those humble inquiries into the unknown, revelations culled from the night, the twilight and the far away.

Working in graphic design, typeface design, and calligraphy for many years, I was intimately involved with various letterforms. My sculptures are based mostly on the negative forms of the ancient Roman Capital Letters, that is: the Circle, the Triangle, and the Square. The sculptures thus provide a geometric counterpoint to the organic content of my paintings.
