"The Potential Energy Series"

The “Potential Energy Series" was inspired by my memories of being an undergraduate physics student. The potential energy concept is first taught in Classical Mechanics classes but also has application in other disciplines of physics study.

Bold primary colors were used in the paintings to allude to the exciting nature of solving the mysteries of science and abstract mathematics. The math that specifically inspired these paintings dealt with a simple pendulum problem from classical mechanics.

The works were started using watercolor-like acrylic washes. Areas on the canvases were left untouched to allow the gessoed surfaces to show alongside patches of vibrant color. Acrylic paint was dripped in a calligraphic fashion. Select equations were dripped and made into acrylic skins and then collaged into the works. It was important to me not to make paintings of the solution but of the process and creative energy involved in solving the problem.

Love these abstracts! Great merging of interests. I found that I actually made figures out in these pieces. That is the wonderful thing about art...we all see different things in a creative piece and its process. Keep up the good work! I will be looking often for new stuff.

Thank you, I appreciate the feedback. I think its important for the artists to share their ideas about their work but leave enough room for the audience to be free to see something new in the work from their own perspective.

P.S. I read your post about the Mona Lisa. Interesting. I will post a comment about it soon.

Thanks again, Princess
