Artist Statement

 

 

"The world is a mysterious place full of mysteries and complexity and as humans we share a common desire for understanding the nature of our existence. Fundamental principles of the universe that were once understood by our ancestors have been lost to time and the manipulation of human history.In my work with abstract forms and symbolism, I look to re discover and express these principles in a form of philosophical exploration into unknown regions of the mind. By combining of simplistic forms and presenting them in complex and non intuitive ways, I am attempting to convey a unique state of feeling and thought and to invoke an intuitive feeling of understanding for the ineffable qualities of the mental experience. My artwork is an expression of my experiences in unique transcendental states and a personal account of insights into the nature of existence."
