SPIRITUAL ABSTRACT PAINTINGS
When I paint in this style I try not to preconceive what the final image will be. Painting, structure and balance are my primary concerns. Many changes occur and the painting develops progressively through many layers of brushstrokes that create movement. My paintings technique is powered by my subconscious concerns that deliver unique and significant results.

Symbolic themes contained in this series are: creation {earth and heaven}, atmosphere {ethereal clouds, wind, storms}and angles {modern man's geometric world.}

Creation: a synthesis, from the artist's standpoint, of matter, space and color. Creation is not a reproduction of observed fact. Hans Hofmann

"The beauty of Hawaii influences my art. The favorable climate, dramatic lighting, and the ocean are constant sources of inspiration. I create paintings that are visually active with atmosphere, movement and reverence to our spiritual and earthly world"

 Black and white symbolises the profound contrast of our lives. Numerous brushstrokes represent time. Multiple lines create momentum and direction. Together, they build a path for your eyes to travel.

Concerning the Inspiration for my Abstract Paintings

Late one night, while working, my spiritual experience occurred. Rapidly, I became quiescence with a tremendous feeling of humbleness and spiritual purity. Involuntarily, my tears flowed forth and my assignment was revealed. The instruction was- to use my paintings as a Tool to Guide. As the presence softened I pertinently asked, "how shall I accomplish my task"? It became apparent that the question was left for me to answer. The enormous responsibility of the mission was overwhelming. I did not know where to begin.

Since that night, over twenty years ago, I have developed compelling abstract paintings that symbolize sacred and spiritual awareness. Often, my themes include creation {earth and heaven}, atmosphere {ethereal clouds, wind,} and angles {modern man's geometric world.} Titles such as "Levels of Life," "Jonah and the Whale," "Technical Deluge" and "Good, Evil and Modern Man" emphasize the spiritual and physical interconnection of our existence.

To achieve my task, as "A Tool to Guide" has been very challenging, yet rewarding. In the future as in the past, I will continue to paint. For my paintings are not for my custody; they are for humanity. D.McGeary
