Cosmos

Cosmos

“I realized then that even though I was a tiny speck in an infinite cosmos, a blip on the timeline of eternity, I was not without purpose.” – R.J. Anderson, Ultraviolet Finding the meaning of life and why we exist is an integral part of our survival. We will spend a huge portion of our lives searching for our purpose. Maybe we were created to explore that lingering question, “Why am I here?” It certainly will not be solved in […]

Voltage

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla “Without discipline in spiritual pursuits, the central nervous system doesn’t have a chance to adjust and grow with the increased demand. It would be like putting a high voltage into a small bulb – it is bound to explode.” – Sivananda Radha Saraswati Art is impulsive without apology. It either electrifies or repels. It can influence or evoke resistance.  […]

Convergence

“In painting you must give the idea of the true means of the false.” – Edgar Degas This painting speaks to the theme of unifying opposing ideas and concepts.  Through the process of convergence, we see that the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts.  In this painting, Ralph White sought to expand the concept of the spiritual journey beyond the individual to the communal. Convergence displays a lovely color palette that blends reds, purples and oranges […]

Flashpoint

Flashpoint

“But life is long. And it is the long run that balances the short flare of interest and passion.” – Sylvia Plath “Every life can be learned from, as either a flame of hope or a cautionary flare.” – Richard Paul Evans Flash point is the moment at which someone or something bursts into action or being, such as an outbreak or flare-up. This painting is the center of a volcano.  The blasts of colors are flares of passion and […]

Jungle

“They can put me in a jungle. Still, I can create.” – M. F. Husain The jungle is a dense labyrinth of overgrown trees and unruly wildlife.  It is synonymous with entanglement and puzzling riddles.  This painting illustrates a chaparral or thick brush as it consumes its surroundings. When life bogs you down and you feel as if you were lost in a jungle of fragmented thoughts and feelings, finding your way out can be overwhelming. In those moments you […]

The Scarf

The Scarf

“I’m going to search for my star until I find it. It’s hidden in the drawer of innocence, wrapped in a scarf of wonder.” – Michael Jackson In this painting, Ralph White captures a moment so transient that it is out of focus, allowing us to interpret the action in our own way. The effective use of white adds to the feeling of a girl rushing through the air itself. Her features remain obscured as does her mission.  Her dress […]

Core

Core

“I think art is not an ornament or refinement at the fringes of human intelligence, I think it’s at the center. It’s at the core.” – Robert Pinsky Some say that art is elective or voluntary. So how do you explain that your soul craves the expression of beauty in everything you see?  How do you describe the feeling of color or your gravitation to undefined concepts in need of discovery?  Art is exploration and a continuous effort to create […]

Inferno

Inferno

“From a little spark may burst a flame.” – Dante Alighieri “A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.” – Carl Jung An inferno is any place or state resembling hell. This painting is called Inferno as it exhibits a fire raging out of control.  This haunting pageant of purgatory represents your soul in transition.  There’s a constant war within us battling for peace and justice. This painting is an expression of […]

Flaming Sunset

Flaming Sunset

Flaming Sunset “The sunset caught me, turned the brush to copper, set the clouds to one great roof of flame above the earth.” – Elizabeth Coatsworth “The sky takes on shades of orange during sunrise and sunset, the color that gives you hope that the sun will set only to rise again.” – Ram Charan This painting Flaming Sunset is Mother Nature’s masterpiece.  The sky is her canvas with the haze and clouds being the brush strokes of color.  The […]

Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave

“Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Changes are like waves rolling back and forth.  They can bring great opportunities or painful growth.  As humans, we tend to resist change as it causes an upheaval of comfort.  Embracing change is always a gamble. This painting is called Rogue Wave as it represents a shift in tides.  It reminds us that while we may […]
