Recognition and Intentions Conveyed: It is the living spirits of a consciousness that sustain all life-forms within the universe! Recent theories in cosmology and quantum physics speak to this mystery. Via a ritualized approach to art, I seek to connect with this living aspect of existence. In the artist’s way, I believe it is necessary to harmonize one’s state of mind with the synchronicity of events; to discover interconnectedness. Listening becomes an essential quality.
First Nations and Japanese worldview’s, acknowledge this underlying reality of consciousness, which has greatly influenced my art. Mostly, I explore the transformation of Nature’s organic forms as they reveal change and Spirit. Insights awaken a self transcendence to the emergence of the true essence of reality.
I manipulate clay without aggression or the desire to impose the ego. I surrender to the process, observe the changes and embody the expressions of the clay. Finally, I abandon my inspired creations to the energetic forces of fire and air.
