Connections

at 10 West Gallery in Santa Barbara July 26 - September 10th 2023

“We are all connected.” These words have echoed through my life, resonating in my mind and soul since my earliest memories. As a child, my mother spoke of a magnificent tapestry, an invisible golden spider web that intricately linked every living being and element of our world. I was captivated by this idea, visualizing a breathtaking grid that transcends the boundaries of our physical existence. Now, in the later years of my life, I find myself revisiting this concept, re-envisioning what life means.

 

Across cultures and time, diverse belief systems and spiritual traditions have all touched upon the notion of oneness, emphasizing the cosmic connections that bind us. Through my artistic journey and a fifty-year meditation practice, I have delved into these philosophies, seeking to unravel life’s mystery. I have had glimpses into divine patterns and wonderment that exist beyond the limitations of our everyday perception, witnessed the intricate pixels forming patterns and vast tapestries, a symphony of interconnectedness. These visions have awakened a deep sense of awe and reverence within me, inspiring the creation of this new body of work.

 

In my artistic practice, I strive to capture the essence of these extraordinary experiences and convey the profound truth of our shared oneness. It is a meditative immersion where I surrender to the flow of creativity tapping into a universal consciousness that transcend my own perspective. It is my hope that my art serves as a portal for others to experience the collective whole and embrace the beauty and power of our share existence.
