Most of these are composed of multiple layers of brights and subtles
. They are designed with the pi-ratio proportions of sacred geometry and visually enhanced with 3D surrealism. Themes are based on the Chalice - as a symbol of personal and spiritual transformation, not necessarily religious, but more along the lines of a spiritual or ecumenical unifying-thread-orientation. On the other hand, might there be a bridge between chakra's, vortices, wormholes, travel to other dimensions (inner as well as outer)?
I do my work from a very close-up perspective
far beyond what the average browser presents, particularly with the multi-layering.
began with a 3+ dimensional form that I 'saw' (or visually conceived, or both) back in the late Spring of 1985. In Spring of '86 I drew up the first full color, albeit 1D, version of the 'Temple Diamond Chalice', done in colored pencil and pen (a digital re-rendering is included in the gallery). When putting it's design to paper, I used designs drawn up in '85 with the pi-ratio proportions of sacred geometry. This first rendering (shown in the blog, 'Sacred Geometry, Proportion, Function') provided the basis for most of my chalice art.

Note if considering a print:
The high gloss of the acrylic sheet complements the rich colors of *light-based art* on dark/black backgrounds.
