The title "Speed of Life" makes reference to the incredible pace of contemporary life as well as the brevity of our lives. In past centuries time and distance acted as a filter against change and influence. In our era trends and events in Tokyo or Baghdad impact quickly and forcefully. The blur of movement and the fading into light found in the current paintings reminds us of the fragility of modern life in the face of social and technological change. As individuals our time is short. The paintings in "Speed of Life" call us to let go of the individual ego and reflect on the nature of time.
