If we are formed from the same matter that created our universe, who can say our human experiences & emotions aren’t responsible for the propagation of stars, galaxies or even planets? While caught between space & earth, we strive for balance between the weight of gravity & a desire to connect with expansiveness. It can be a battle or beautiful dance to find equilibrium.
As a painter of light, I explore this premise with mixed medium. My research, though centered on the Human Energy Field (HEF), which can express itself though the aura & chakra vortices, also includes ethereal or earthly frequencies not always perceivable to the human eye. The creative process often starts &/or closes with meditation to create a clear channel. Ink, acrylic, wax & alcohol are some of the building blocks utilized. Though medium is deliberately placed, their interactions cannot always be predicted. In order to find balance, the pigments battle & dance. The result are works that represent the human experience as light, elements, galaxies & stars.
