For me, all art is BrainArt. My art has been an exploration of big picture abstract metaphors, from "The Big Bang" to the "Core of BRAINsight". The paintings were heavily influenced by insights from the international database on human brain function that I founded. My Brain Science research over 40 years has been about discovering the essence of emotions, bias and intuition. Brain science is about conscious numbers and words. Brain art is about subconscious patterns of emotion and symbols. While art tends to be subconscious and emotional, I also employ my conscious brain to create as well. In each painting, I like to explore these 2 sides, of subconscious and conscious expression, in the same brain coin. I have experienced few situations that engender deeper joy or self-reflective gravitas than to express patterns of emotion in my paintings. Hence the name BRAINsightArt.
