On Art

 

 

 

                  My art can be characterized as contemporary animism, part of a great tradition that can be traced back to the beginnings of civilization, something innate in us all. When working in my studio, I look for the transformation of material and intent into sculptures and paintings that speak for themself. This involves a process that is part waking trance, part visualization and married to the consciousness of my hands.

 

                  The daily creative work in my studio is similar to the “practice”, of meditation. I become a functional daydreamer, working in a trance, from a deeper awareness than my normal, concrete, operational self. I focus my intent on creating sculptures and paintings that have an energetic quality of their own. I feel that visual consciousness can be freed from the over riding influence of language and speak directly to the heart.

 

 

Process

 

                  I use shamanistic methodology to focus my intent and create a sacred space to work in.  This space and process are very different from a normal manufacturing process. My tools are allies and with them I forge a special bond. They all have a relationship with my hands and I speak with them as helpers. Whenever a clear moment is created between us, I thank them for bringing me to that moment and keeping me safe.

 

                  I work in metal and paper. Metal is transformed into sculptures and paintings, while paper is used in drawing. I physically approach both materials in a similar fashion. The metal I etch, then it is mine. The paper is very heavy and handmade. I scarify the surface, similar to an etch, then reveal its detail by using a wash or pigmented wax. On the metal all color is given by oxides, force grown on the surface. These oxides are bonded to the surface and are translucent in property.  Opaque colors can be achieved with many layers. No pigment is involved. On paper I use both water and oil based pigment products.
