Collective Consciousness in a Unified Field
An ongoing series that I have been working on since 2012 - 2021
As an artist I have been exploring found objects since 1992. The collection and repurposing of leisure-based waste was commentary on residing in a consumptive culture. I manipulated, painted and embellished old socks, tennis nets heading to land fills, take-out cups plus numerous droppings from nature. I created colonies of units pushing them to resemble sea urchins and oysters unifying them as a community and individualizing them within the collective. The results are quiet contemplative pieces that evoke nature. We are unique like leaves and snowflakes, however, ultimately we are all connected in a unified field as One.
My artwork is my external practice of my inner expanding consciousness.
