ARTIST STATEMENT 2023
MOVING through the SPIRITUAL LIFE
As an artist, my practice is rooted in the exploration of the spiritual and unconscious realms of human experience. I work in a variety of mediums, including abstract colorful painting, black and white figurative drawings, creative writing, and performance, all of which serve as vehicles for my investigation into these realms.
My abstract colorful paintings are a celebration of the vitality and energy of life. They are an expression of the joy and wonder that comes from being fully immersed in the present moment. Through the use of color and form, I seek to evoke a sense of awe and wonder in the viewer, inviting them to explore the deeper dimensions of their own experience.
My black and white figurative drawings, on the other hand, are an exploration of the shadow aspects of human experience. They are an invitation to look into the darker corners of our psyche, to confront the parts of ourselves that we would rather ignore or deny. Through these drawings, I seek to create a space for reflection and introspection, where the viewer can engage with the parts of themselves that are often hidden from view.
In my creative writing, I explore themes of spirituality and the unconscious, using language as a tool for diving deep into the mysteries of the human experience. Whether through poetry, prose, or essay, my writing is an invitation to journey inward, to explore the hidden dimensions of our consciousness.
Finally, my performance work is a synthesis of all of these elements, an immersive experience that invites the viewer to engage with the spiritual and unconscious realms in a visceral and embodied way. Through movement, sound, and visual elements, I seek to create a space for transformation and transcendence, where the boundaries between self and other dissolve, and we are invited into a deeper sense of connection with the universe.
Ultimately, my work is an expression of my own spiritual journey, a quest for meaning and connection in a world that often feels disconnected and chaotic. Through my art, I seek to inspire others to embark on their own journeys of self-discovery and transformation, to explore the depths of their own consciousness and connect with something greater than themselves.
