The moment of naked horror was palpable and forever frozen within the confines of my mind and soul in an unbelievable surreal landscape of terror and utter devastation. Yet, even in the midst of this horrendous spectacle the "persistence of good" outweighed the "persistence of evil". The selfless sacrifice of the brave individuals who responded to this terror bore witness to untold courage, valor and love that human beings are capable of when tragedy strikes. The "better angels of men" rose to surmount this Everest of evil and to reveal to all the unbridled love that humankind has at it's core. This connection to each other runs deep within the DNA that courses through the veins of all of us. Brothers and sisters are we. Together we move forward or backward. The choice remains ours to decide. visionary imagist "Joey"

About the artist

My paintings are metaphors for a deeper hidden reality. My art is vibrant in colors, mesmerizing through movement and an adventure into the mystical realm of the unseen. The viewer is taken into formerly unknown landscapes, traversing time and space to arrive at a place that is the beginning of an inward movement to an Everest of artistic endeavors. Leave behind thoughts that hold to the mundane and begin to travel with me to fresh, new and exciting landscapes. I will splash onto the canvas prodigious vibrant colors and explore new ideas and unseen vistas. Come with me and explore my work. My paintings are an implement that the Cosmos employs to tell the Universe’s hidden messages. I always allow the subject to be the master and me the student. Never forgetting that I am just the palette of a Higher Reality that uses me to present the unfolding story of the Cosmos. My paintings are the traces of colored atoms of energy that have exploded onto the canvas. These become the remains of my experienced moments of insights with a clarity that exhibits from a Higher Realm. These are moments that demand to be exposed, to come into being, to come to life and to live on in the memory of the viewer. The whole world, the Cosmos is but a symbol. It is telling each of us something that the Creator Breath is conveying. Art can become the symbols for these thoughts. If we then follow those symbols through art we can then try to interpret the language of the Creator. That is what I attempt to do through my art. Gallery established in 1996 in downtown district of Sandusky,Ohio. Artist in residence for MHRB Erie & Ottawa counties, Ohio.
