(Non)Duality

Ross Bisbee's avatar Ross Bisbee

My current work consists of intricate abstract paintings that are created with black oil-based paint upon primed and cradled panels. Each piece is relatively unplanned, as I try as best I can to allow for the ideas and mark makings to happen as naturally as possible. At each given moment I am not entirely sure what the final work will look like or even how the mark I am currently making will ultimately affect my ever changing idea of how to proceed. The paintings tend to grow, so to speak, slowly but surely, until they are finally 'finished.' Key concepts and ideas that relate to my work are: synergy, symbiosis, fluidity, inter-connectivity, diversity, harmony, growth & decay, cognition, mindfulness, spontaneity, balance, and non-duality. My work, aside from being inspired by my own life experiences and philosophies, is also influenced by my studies of physics, engineering, biology, philosophy, taoism, buddhism, ancient history, and other varied scientific and spiritual interests.
