In the depths of meditation, a greater fundamental reality reveals itself behind my closed eyelids. When I open my eyes the feelings of freedom remain but the vision fades. Painting has become the modality in which I maintain and explore these meditative visions further. The canvas offers a stretch of space in which I can translate the energy I experience into a language accessible to all. I begin by finding the geometric dissection of the space. This becomes the compositional framework. To develop each scene, I use linseed oil to layer multiple glazes in order to enrich the depth of the space. Oil paint allows an elongated time frame in which to develop each scene while providing a deep saturation of color. I use this medium to employ a sense of realism by using the figure and elements of landscape in order to encompass our primary perception. From this perspective it is then easy to reveal a parallel reality of cosmic existence. Drawing upon esoteric teachings in combination with the insights of astronomy and physics, I intend to inspire a greater consciousness of energy. Indeed the energy that flows through the cosmos too flows through us as individuals. I seek to offer viewers a scene of transcendence from the mundane into a higher field of cosmic existence.
