I remember a long time ago hearing about a book titled "We Are Not
Alone." Although I did not read the book, the title was a bit of an
influence for my own title. When we look out at our land in the sky
we see many stars, too. Many light years separate us from our
neighbors. Yet, rather than draw attention to the idea of our
relation to other possible forms of intelligence, I find it just as
affirming to note our uniqueness among the other "lands" of the
Universe. I have tried to overstate our existance graphically in
order to further point to the fact that we simply "Are" even though
we may appear small and insignificant against the eternal ocean of
stars. It goes without saying that we can "Be" many different things
in addition to our not being alone.
In my painting, I wanted to also represent life. Possibly, if you
look closely, you can see just where that is shown.
