COLLAGE & MIXED MEDIA
GOLDEN THREADS SERIES
Do you ever get the feeling that all things are some how mysteriously woven together and connected in your life? Perhaps coincidences are not coincidences. This has always been a fascination of mine. Things may not make sense at first, and we may not fully understand why opportunities and or people show up, but then we discover a connection that is just too profound to be accidental. We ask ourselves it this just a coincidence or perhaps something destined by fate. The universal laws, and findings within quantum physics, prove that we are all connected whether we acknowledge it or not. Our lives are fully intertwined with that of universe, nature and other humans. It is a divine connection that is beyond what can be seen. It is only our egos that keep us separate. This is what I like to think of as the golden thread. I long for a world where the barriers and divisions dissolve and we can co-exist in a more collaborative and peaceful way.
As we navigate our current times I believe we are experiencing a mass awakening and elevation of consciousness. These are both difficult and exciting times. A convergence of darkness and light. As all change demands, we are finding our way through uncharted territory, destroying old structures and beliefs to make way for the new. Everything feels more extreme and urgent ~ times of exponential change and evolution.
This body of work was created during my time living in Mexico when I had just left urban life and began experiencing a slower pace, an embodiment of truly being and, as a result, my world became more vibrant which gave me a whole new perspective on both seeing and feeling.
DANCE OF THE SENSES SERIES
This body of work was done while I was spending an extended period of time in Florence, Italy. My daily cadence was slowed to a healthy and stress-less state and my senses were exploding with new found elements of joy ~ A feeling of Joie De Vivre. When our senses are sharpened we have the ability to find so much beauty and happiness in the everyday.
Working in collage and mixed media allows me to take disparate pieces of things that already exist in life and make new connections and meaning. It gives me the ultimate possibility to play with shapes, textures and imagery, all of which open the eye up to new perspectives and visual context.
