statement/cv
My work deals with and seeks to visualize the physical and spiritual structure of space, time, and the universe. My world view is shaped by meditative practices based in the idea that we manifest our realities by shaping the universe through consciousness and intention. The work draws from that and is heavily supplemented by ideas found in string theory, multiverse theory, and theoretical physics that explores multiple dimensions and universes and supports the idea that matter is shaped by the existence of consciousness. These ideas emerge in the work as woven imagery, undulating and permeable planes, and forms derived from physical models of energy, space-time, infinity and potential other universes or dimensions. I intuitively create, alter, and combine forms and planes of existence in order to explore the idea that all things are the same in their material and immaterial existences despite their seeming separateness.
