BETWEEN LIFE & DEATH THERE IS A ROMANCE

I AM A RITUAL ARTIST

 

I AM INTENSELY CONNECTED WITH THE NATURAL WORLD AS WELL AS THE POLLUTION IN IT. IN THE TREES, THE STREAMS, THE MUD AND HIDDEN PLACES AROUND THE BEND.

 

I AM GIVING A VOICE TO THE SPIRITS WITH EACH ARTWORK. I CREATE THESE DIVINE-WORKINGS TO NURTURE THE RELATIONSHIPS I HAVE DEVELOPED WITH DIVINITY. I PAINT THE UNSEEN. 

 

WHEN MY APEX IS REACHED WITH THE COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS I PAINT THE ART OF SECRETS.  

 

MY PAINTINGS ARE COMPRISED OF High to low relief, TEXTURE FROM ORGANIC FORMS, SYMBOLS (SIGILS), & EMOTIVE ENERGY. MY PALETTE COMES FROM DRIED 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 make my paints. 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.

 

MY ART IS ABOUT THE AWAKENING TO THE BEAUTY OF DEATH & THE CHALLENGE OF LIFE.
