This painting represents not only the simple concept of ‘foggy brain’ most of us can identify with having from time to time, but also symbolizes the flares of S.O.S. being sent from those suffering from official neurological conditions. It speaks to the significance of having hope in the midst of uncertainty and determination to dispel the fog of limited answers and subsequent isolation to discover support and new life on the other side.
About the Neuron Series
My expressive paintings on neuron-centric subject matter advocate for communities in the realms of rare disease, neuroscience, and mental health. The content originated with my daughter’s rare genetic disorder. I became intrigued by the complexity and beauty of the human brain, inspired by the hope of its ability to re-circuit around inflicted damage.
I bring expressionistic, experiential fine art to the scientific community, yet incorporate scientific research and structure into the world of artistic expression. While the genre of digital neuro imaging is emerging, my unique approach weaves this ground-breaking content with human experience, creativity and painterly tradition - supporting fine art’s foothold amidst the growing influence of technology. My imagery intentionally blurs the lines of the abstract and physiological - recognizable as neurons to those with a trained eye but inclusive to all who are curious.
