Artist Statement

     The masked participants of these drawings are acting out rituals involving age old occult signifiers such as crystals, energy fields, levitation, conjuring and sacrifice. Each drawing aims to evoke the feelings associated with magic and the supernatural. There is an interest in how occult practitioners wish to protect themselves, to gather power to themselves, to assure their good fortune and guarantee their luck in this universe by penetrating the Unknown.
