Transitions arrive and depart.  Continually.  Overlapping each other.  Sometimes so slowly that we hardly notice them, like geology or age.  Sometimes quickly, even violently, like weather or death.

Transitions Emerge. In the exhibition displays to the left, we see a dozen transitions, evoked in specific images, in four broad categories in each panel (clockwise form upper left: Cycles of Nature, Stages of Life, Structural Transformations, Decline and Loss), and displaying each panel as either a spiral or a triangle symbol of change. 

Transitions evolve, putting us and our world in a state of constant transformation, carrying us to new places and leaving behind the old – wrenchingly sad, gloriously good, and everything in between. So, for each image, this evolving transition is evoked representationally using the metaphor of an image emerging from a single elemental color, differentiating into separate colors, then adding lines & forms, to shape the final image.
