The minerals of painting extend into the landscape. It is an archeology. It digs up impressions. It organizes vibrations and plays them on the soul. The eye sees the forces of nature exhibited in painting, but what appears is not chaos. It materially expresses a motivation, which for anything is first an impression and then seeks harmony. It signifies, if only partially successful, a spiritual pursuit in material form. A gaze at the night’s sky can remind one of Christ and His twelve Apostles. Painting is symbol. It exhibits the proposition that matter matters.
