BETWEEN LIFE & DEATH THERE IS A ROMANCE

I AM A RITUAL ARTIST TRANSFORMING THE WORLD'S DECAY IN ECSTATIC TRANCE I PAINT.


THE WORK IS COMPRISED OF HIGH TO LOW RELIEF, TEXTURE FROM ORGANIC FORMS, SYMBOLS (SIGILS), & EXPLOSIVE EMOTION. 

 

THE PALETTE IS DERIVED FROM DRIED, DECAYED PLANTS, ANIMALS, AND MINERALS. I USE INK MADE FROM ASHES, NUTS,AND HERBS. I BIND IRON OXIDES AND VEGETABLE EARTH PIGMENTS FOR CREATING EARTHY HUES. I MIX EGG, WATER & WINE. I MELT, POUR, AND LAYER PIGMENTED BEESWAX WITH DAMAR TREE RESIN. A BLOW TORCH IS MY BRUSH FUSING ALL THIS TOGETHER.

 

CONFRONTING THE BEAUTY OF DEATH & THE CHALLENGE OF LIFE.

 

I BELIEVE WE ARE ALL DIVINE
