“Knight represents the spiritual initiate acting in the world. It moves by leaps of intuition along the sides of a right triangle. It alternates between black and white squares with each move, therefore, engaging the head and heart in each action. Only a knight or pawn can initiate an action in each game.”
There are times, when, as in a game, white seems black and black seems white, work is play and play is work. We move our “pieces” and adapt our moves. The series of paintings was created with those thoughts in mind.
One of the continuing threads of my work is to explore our animal nature by depicting large animals that are more familiar to us as metaphors for human interactions and conditions.
