STATEMENT: "My multidisciplinary work employs ancient symbolism, ritualistic activation, transformative transmission, natural and supernatural processes, the physics of math, space and material, light language encoding, sacred geometry, energy medicine, and crystalline infusion. Whether painting, building, creating installation or presenting collaborative projects, my work harnesses magical potency, with medicinal dosages distributed in belief-empowered contexts. My projects and objects work interactively with quantum reality, nature and humanity. Much of my art is explicitly, mindfully, impermanent; embracing transformation and realizing a full cycle of creation through dissolution, beyond spacetime. I work to imbue remedy into a harmony forged between, wonder and mindfulness, intention and serendipity, love and release, perspective and power."
