The definition of Suspiration is "to fetch a deep breath, breathe out, exclaim with a sigh." These paintings are made with that sentiment in mind. They are painted using an intuitive process of allowing each layer of paint to inform what comes next. It's about being present in the moment of creation in order to tap into a higher form of creativity that is not hindered by the restrictions of the mind. In this series, deep explorations of psychological archetypes and symbolism help create meaningful, non-objective work.
