The search for meaning and the comprehension of this ephemeral experience called life is the underlying thread in my work: the complexities of the subconscious mind, dreams, and the polarities between darkness and light. Inherently, the art reflects my personal history—a visual documentation of each epoch resulting in distinct bodies of work. When creating this work, it is imperative to allow my subconscious to move freely without the interference of the conscious mind, unobstructed from the restrictions of logic. Consequently, it is only midway through the process that I am able to withdraw from the intensity of inspired work to analyze and discover the essence which has been gradually revealing itself. I consider myself a psychological archaeologist, digging through the rubble of the inner terrain, probing blindly into the dark, until the spotlight of awareness reveals itself. Essentially, the context of my work can be summed up by psychologist Kazimierz Dabrowski and his work on the Theory of Positive Disintegration: “advanced development requires a breakdown of existing psychological structures in order to form higher, more evolved structures”.
In addition, the internal struggle between the spiritual body and the physical one is demonstrated in my laborious creative process. Thus, it is imperative that the work is multi-layered and time consuming—a technique which induces presence while concurrently moving farther away from the modern high speed platform of the digital age. Time is an essential component -or specifically, lack of time- for timelessness is an essential attribute in my work as the foundation is of a spiritual nature.
