The purpose of Notes is to share similarities between abstract art and human communication generally and psychotherapy specifically.

Feelings, sensations and thoughts are merged together as they find a path to the canvas. This coming together, this interaction, could not be known before. The process is spontaneous, unpredictable and always new.

Just as every paint stroke is a result of an infinite number of variables in the moment, human communication parallels such spontaneity and unpredictability.

However, human communication seeks understanding, whereas abstract art seeks the evocation of experience.

Your response to Notes and paintings will help to further elaborate this conceptual framework. I look forward to knowing what you think.

Thank you.
