The essence of life and death lies in the breath, and the breath is the art being a transmission from the heart of the planet or logos. My art, employing aspects of psychology, non dual spirituality, tribalism with its true deep ecology as well as folklore, seeks to directly connect with the primordial awareness within the viewer. In my working practice (painting, sculpture, lighting sculpture, photography, poetry, art installation) I often respond to a non-dual context through my focus on oneness as an ever present life-force. I draw viewer’s attention to a continuous dialog between the end and the beginning happening beyond our limited senses. What ends up being on the canvas (or in any other form) is a reflection of the archetypal mirror that leads me in this entrancing flight in a vehicle that is breathing, and the cleaner the mirror the better the reflection. My work is proposing new perspectives and the impact is inevitable because it comes straight from the soul.
