I spend a lot of time in meditation, and my work is the physical incarnate of that practice. My goals are present based, so I focus on concepts of color and light. The world we live in is stressful, and sometimes downright scary. Everything seems difficult, frustrating... politics, the environment, social media, traffic... the constant push to go faster, smarter, and more efficient is taking me to the brink. I make art to escape the hard; to embrace a moment with the simplicity and complexity of color, to dwell in it’s loud and quiet, expansion and contraction...and this is enough, enough for right now. These are the times that we need reflection... to reflect on breathing, on ether, on color, and movement. Art may not save our souls, but it may save a moment.
