“Art is my dormant awareness always present deep in the quantum field. My art process destroys the conditional reality around me in order to create a psychic vacuum – within my consciousness – whereby other experiences manifest before me. No one dreams while they are fully awake. Cultures like the Egyptian and Sumerians for example were utterly saturated in sorcery and mysticism and we are told that these people tend to be stagnant and backward. Were they?
I don’t ignore the shadow in me because it is the silent treatment to one half of what I am. A painting is made up of light and shadow. This optical illusion brings the paintings to life, creating a naturalistic view to the artwork by accentuating perspective and realism. Our spiritual lives are no different. We need the shadows as well as the highlights – on the canvas of our own spiritual painting – so as to bring our mystical selves to a full honest potential. I explore magic or call it the supernatural (the modern word for it) to generate a greater awareness and so become a more interesting or attractive painting in teh gallery of life and my art is my extension of that process.”
